IAAF suspends three top Kenyan officials over graft, anti-doping probe


PARIS: Three top Kenyan athletics officials were suspended on Monday (Tuesday in Manila) over suspicions they siphoned off sponsorship money from Nike and subverted anti-doping controls. In the latest hammer-blow to global track and field, the IAAF ethics commission announced the provisional suspension of the Kenyan athletics federation president and two other top officials in the “interests of the integrity of the sport”. Athletics Kenya president Isaiah Kiplagat was suspended along with vice-president David Okeyo, an IAAF Council member, and Joseph Kinyua, former federation treasurer and Kenya Team Leader at the IAAF 2015 World Championships in Beijing.
