Kenya warn doping cheats belong in ‘dustbin’

0

NAIROBI: Kenya’s Minister of Sports Hassan Wario warned on Friday (Saturday in Manila) that athletes caught doping would be consigned to the “dustbin of history”, in a bid to repair the reputation of the east African country’s fabled distance runners. The crisis in Kenyan sports follows the disgrace of top marathoner Rita Jeptoo, a two-time Chicago and Boston winner, who was caught using the blood-boosting drug EPO. Wario was speaking in Nairobi at a special anti-doping seminar organized by the International Association of Athletics Federations along with the country’s governing body Athletics Kenya.
