Nairobi - - Kenyan Rita Jeptoo, winner of the Boston and Chicago marathons for the last two years, has been banned from the sport for two years after failing a drugs test, Athletics Kenya (AK) said on Friday.
"AK followed due process in her (Rita Jeptoo) matter and it was appropriate that she serves a two-year ban," AK chief executive Isaac Kamande told Reuters.
Jeptoo has denied doping, telling reporters last year that the accusations against her were "lies".
