Kiplagat seeks another term as athletics chief

13 May 2013, 17:37

Nairobi - Isaiah Kiplagat is set to become Kenya's longest-serving Kenyan athletics boss when he is re-elected for a sixth term on Tuesday.

The 68-year-old former civil servant, who has been at the helm of the federation since 1992, will be running unopposed at the association's annual general meeting in Nairobi.

But Kiplagat's long-serving general secretary, David Okeyo will have to relinquish his seat, which has been scrapped, and a new post of CEO will be created under the new structure for Athletics Kenya.

Three other posts of technical director, marketing and communication and personal assistant to the chairman will also be filled by the incoming board.

During Kiplagat's tenure the sport became highly professionalized, but the country's success has recently been rocked by recent allegations of drug-taking by athletes.
