Kenyan drug bust


TWO Kenyans have failed pre-competitio­n drugs tests at the world championsh­ips in Beijing and have been provisiona­lly suspended, the IAAF announced last night.

Koki Manunga and Joyce Zakary “have accepted provisiona­l suspension­s following positive samples provided in Beijing on the 20th and 21st of August respective­ly”, the IAAF said.

Track and field’s world governing body said the Kenyan pair had been tested at the athletes’ hotel.

Kenya was rocked this year when marathon star Rita Jeptoo was banned for two years after a positive EPO test.
