• Half Marathon World Record Holder Abraham Kiptum Suspended for Doping

Article source: Athletics


The Athletics Integrity Unit  (AIU) announced on Friday (26) a provisional suspension from competition against Kenya’s Abraham Kiptum for an Athlete Biological Passport violation.

Last year in October at Valencia half marathon, the 29-year-old Kiptum clocked 58:18 beating Zersenay Tadese's Half Marathon world record by 5 seconds.

Kiptum was set to run the London marathon on Sunday.

"We have a zero-tolerance policy on doping,"

"We recently announced a groundbreaking extensive intelligence-driven testing programme. This shows the programme is working. Cheats will be caught and there is no place for them in marathon running." London Marathon director Hugh Brasher told BBC.

Kiptum is one of many top Kenyan athletes suspended for doping or an Athlete Biological Passport (ABP) violation.
