Kipsang, also a two-time London and New York Marathon champion was slapped with a four-year ban by the Athletics Integrity Unit (AIU) after missing three tests within a 12-month period.
“They (AIU) rely on information from ADAK and AK. Because these giys are not in good terms with me, they give wrong information about me. I give the right information but they say ‘this guy is lying’ because we are not in good terms,” a tearful Kipsang said in an interview with KTN News.
Kipsang missed four tests within a 12-month period in 2018-2019 but was excused for one as it was proved that his manager was unable to change his whereabouts location in time.
But, he could not prove beyond doubt why he missed the other three.
