When Kemi Adekoya unceremoniously dumped Nigeria and chose to compete for Bahrain there was so much noise that the country is losing a talent capable of being the new ‘Falilat Ogunkoya’.

The noise got even louder when Adekoya started winning everything at sight for her adopted country and it was said that Nigeria’s loss was Bahrain’s gain.

Alas! It has turned that Adekoya is only a smoke screen and has been spiking her system with banned substances.

The four-time Asian Games champion has been provisionally suspended after testing positive for an anabolic steroid.

The Athletics Integrity Unit said Monday that a "notice of allegation" was sent to Adekoya.

The AIU said on its website that the 25-year-old Adekoya tested positive for stanozolol -- the steroid that sprinter Ben Johnson used at the 1988 Seoul Olympics -- in November.


In August at the Asian Games, she took gold in the 400-meter hurdles and 4x400 mixed relay.

Adekoya switched to Bahrain before the 2014 Asian Games and won the 400 and 400 hurdles. In 2016, she was world indoor champion in the 400 and competed in the 400 at the Rio de Janeiro Olympic.

Findings byBounce Sports reveals that stanozolol is quite deadly and its side effects include: frequent or persistent erections, or breast tenderness or enlargement (male patients); or voice changes (hoarseness, deepening), hair loss, facial hair growth, clitoral enlargement, or menstrual irregularities (female patients).
