Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Sport Starts Here -

CAPE TOWN — Kenyan ath­let­ics coach John Anzrah has been sent home from the Rio Games af­ter sub­mit­ting his own urine as a sam­ple, in­stead of that of an ath­lete, dur­ing a dop­ing test.

Anzrah is the sec­ond Kenyan to be ban­ished from the Games in Brazil, af­ter track and field man­ager Michael Rotich al­legedly ac­cepted cash for al­low­ing un­der­cover jour­nal­ists — pos­ing as ath­lete rep­re­sen­ta­tives — know when drugs tests would oc­cur.

“We have sent sprint coach Anzrah back home. He pre­sented him­self as an ath­lete, gave the urine sam­ple and even signed the doc­u­ments. We can­not tol­er­ate such be­hav­iour,” chair­per­son of the Na­tional Olympic Com­mit­tee of Kenya, Kip Keino, told Reuters.

Rotich has de­nied the al­le­ga­tions. — Sport24.
