Eldoret - Leading Kenyan athletes have criticized the national federation for suspending their agents in a doping investigation, saying it could hurt their preparations for the world championships.
A group of runners led by former marathon world record-holder Wilson Kipsang issued a joint statement questioning Athletics Kenya's move to suspend two European athlete management companies from working in Kenya for six months.
Italian company Rosa & Associati and the Netherlands' Volare Sports were suspended pending investigations into Kenya's recent spike in doping cases.
At a news conference in the western town of Eldoret, Kipsang read from a prepared statement.
He said "accusing Rosa and Volare of doping has caused unrest," and Athletics Kenya had not provided evidence to show the agents were involved in doping.
