• Third-most cheating nation in East athletics? Kenya defends itself

Kenya’s anti-doping and athletics chiefs on Friday disputed figures that put the east African nation as the third-most cheating nation in the sport in terms of biological passport offences.

Local media in Kenya listed figures showing that the country had 41 biological passport sanctions, behind India (42) and Russia (87).

“Although there is work to be done, we have done a lot in terms of tests, education and continuous monitoring,” Japhter Rugut, Anti-Doping Agency of Kenya (ADAK) chief executive officer, told Reuters when asked about the figures.

“The WADA-accredited laboratory has started operating in Nairobi and we have done many tests there. In the lead-up to World Championships (in Doha), we shall conduct at least four tests on each athlete who will be selected.”
