Crisis in the Kenyan fund: seven doping cases in ten days

Kenya, one of the great powers of world athletics, the homeland of Eliud Kipchoge or Brigid Kosgei among other great long-distance runners, is experiencing a doping crisis among its long-distance athletes. In just ten days, up to seven cases have been reported, in a flood that has swept away some renowned figures.

One of them is Mariud Kipserem, winner of the Rotterdam marathon in 2016 and 2019, who has been disabled for three years by the Athletics Integrity Unit for use of EPO. Philemon Kacheran, third in Valencia this year, will spend the same time off the track for using testosterone to improve his performance. Mark Kangogo, the last winner of the Sierre-Zinal, will have another three years of dry dock for nandrolone and triamcinolone. Keneth Kiprop, who won the Prague and Lisbon socks in 2022, due to metasterone; Ibrahim Mukunga, who raised his arms in the middle of Helsinki, for nandrolone; Diana Chemtai, the fastest in Boston in 2021, and Betty Wilson, both for acetone triamcinolone, complete the ‘hunted’ table.

In the photo also appears the Italian agent Gianni Demadonna, who shares many of the names mentioned and who has already denied his involvement in the matter. “Our policy is that when they take a medicine they tell us. You can’t live with them, ”he said when asked about a problem that has led the Kenyan Anti-Doping Agency to ask federations and other entities for help to solve it.
