Anti-Doping Agency of Kenya (ADAK) has warned athletes that being banned for whereabouts is a sign of negligence that should avoided by all means.
Speaking in Eldoret during the anti-doping seminar, ADAK’s Director of Education and Research Agnes Wanjiru Mandu said that athletes who have been sanctioned on whereabouts should not happen.
“Whereabouts is not like but it an athlete has doped but it is an issue of feeding their data and it is very sad for our athletes because that is negligence,” she said.
ADAK has been collaborating with Athletics Kenya for the sake of Kenyan athletes.
“We want to make sure that our athletes are clean to avoid doping issues. Some are tested and found to have doped without their knowledge. The rules say before a major championship; they must have been educated at least three times. Before an athlete is tested, he must be educated. After testing positive, the first question will be id they have had any education that weakens the case but when you educate them, like today and you miss because AK has given out the list, we must have three sessions for probables for World championships. For those who did not show up, their case will be weakened when they are prosecuted,” she said.
