Commonwealth team warned against doping

10 July 2014, 21:31

Scotland - Kenya's Commonwealth Games squad that will represent the nation in Glasgow, Scotland, have been asked to abstain from using banned substances.

The first of the 291-strong squad will leave for the Queen’s Games on Sunday ahead of the opening ceremony on July 22.

Stephen Soi, the team's chief de mission, warned athletes against doping or using performance-enhancing substances, saying they should be careful even during the games.

“Be careful never take food, drinks or gifts other than what is provided for all the athletes. You might be tricked into taking banned substances,” Soi said at the Safaricom Stadium Kasarani during the team national flag presentation ceremony.

Soi, who is the National Judo Cordinating Board Chairman, said Team Kenya were ready for the Glasgow showdown.
