Relief as Kenya set May 2 anti-doping law deadline

07 April 2016, 21:45

Canada - Kenya were on Thursday given a deadline of May 2 by the World Anti-Doping Agency to implement WADA's code or risk missing out on the Rio Olympics.

A WADA deadline expired on Tuesday with Kenyan lawmakers having failed to pass a bill criminalising sports doping. Kenya had already missed a February 11 deadline.

"Unless the bill, policy and ADAK's (Anti-Doping Agency of Kenya) rules are formally adopted by 2 May 2016, the Compliance Review Committee's recommendation to the WADA Foundation Board will be to declare the ADAK non-compliant," WADA said in a statement.

WADA added that it would vote on the matter at its next meeting in Montreal on May 12.
