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.
