Kenya establishes anti-doping agency

0

NAIROBI: Kenya, under scrutiny amid allegations of widespread doping in world athletics, on Saturday (Sunday in Manila) announced the immediate establishment of an anti-doping agency. Coming just a day after the IAAF, world athletics’ governing body, banned Russia over “state-sponsored” doping, the Kenyan government released details of the new initiative with the aim of assuaging concerns over the east African country’s internal anti-doping policy. Many in Kenya fear doping is rife among their top class athletes too — runners who have been the source of enormous national pride.
