The women 100m hurdles and commonwealth Champions Tobi Amusan of Nigeria would be back today.

Amusan was cleared to defend her title last Thursday by the Athletics Integrity Unit after an appeals panel found she had not violated anti-doping rules despite missing three whereabouts tests in 12 months.

The 26-year-old will be running in lane four and face stiff competition from Olympic bronze medal winner Megan Tapper of Jamaica in the fifth and final heat of the first round.

Other competitors in heat five are Maayke Tjin-a-lim, Michelle Jenneke, Yumi Tanaka, Natalia Christofi, Ebony Morrison and Nika Glojnaric

The race starts by 6:12pm, according to the event schedule of the championship.
