NAIROBI: Athletics Kenya chiefs shrugged off warnings on Thursday (Friday in Manila) teams could be banned from the Rio Olympics if the federation is found to be non-compliant with the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA). IAAF president Sebastian Coe warned on Thursday that he would ban Kenya’s athletics team from Rio if action was not taken, after Kenya missed a February 14 deadline. Athletics Kenya acting president Jackson Tuwei said the country was on track after the formation of the Anti-Doping Association of Kenya (ADAK), and had been given a two-month extension to show it was doing its job.
