National Olympic Committee of Kenya (NOCK) President Dr. Paul Tergat has urged Kenyan athletes to desist from using shortcuts to success by doping.
He said that for athletes to pursue bigger dreams in sports, they should stop from using the performance-enhancing substances.
While addressing the press during the launch of the 19th edition of Sports Personality of the Year Awards (SOYA) sponsors, he encouraged sports personalities to built a good reputation.
“Our focus this year and moving forward as encapsulated in our theme is to protect our integrity and be proud of what we do by playing clean. We need to wade off doping and build our sports careers through resilience, consistency and diligence. Our theme for the awards this year is Our Integrity, Our Pride, Our Sports and we must leave to expectations,” Tergat, who is also the SOYA founder, expounded.
