A whereabouts failure constitutes a filling failure and/or a missed drug test, with three such failures in a 12 month span being an anti-doping violation. Athletes face a two-year ban if found to be at fault.
Naser ran 48.14 in the 2019 World Championships final last October in the fastest women’s 400m performance in over 30 years.
