IAAF rejects former Kenya Isaac Kamande Mwangi’s ban appeal

By on April 9, 2016

The IAAF’s Ethics Committee has rejected former Athletics Kenya (AK) chief executive Isaac Kamande Mwangi’s appeal against his provisional six-month ban for violating anti-doping controls.

Mwangi was accused of seeking bribes to reduce the doping bans of two athletes.

His provisional suspension came after former AK president Isaiah Kiplagat, ex-deputy David Okeyo and former treasurer Joseph Kinyua were banned by the Ethics Committee on charges of mis-using funds from a sponsorship by U.S. sports manufacturer Nike.

Kenya is a global leader in endurance running on the track and in city marathons but more than 40 of their athletes have been banned for doping in the past three years.
