Mark Otieno, on your marks, set…

Former national 100m champion Mark Odhiambo Otieno is itching closer to return fot competitions after serving a two-year doping ban.

On his twitter handle, Otieno wrote: “In less than 12 hours, I will be eligible to compete again.” Mine is a story of God’s faithfulness and mercies,” he added.

Otieno acknowledged the reality that he will not be able to make it to the 2023 World Championship in Budapest, Hungary but noted that he would take a stab at the 2024 Paris Olympics.

Mark was handed a backdated ban by the Athletics Integrity Unit due to the presence of the prohibited substance Methasterone in his system.

The 100m sprinter failed a doping test at the  2020 Olympics in Tokyo, Japan where he was set to participate in the preliminaries.
