Doping authority demands Kenya response

01 March 2016, 22:30

Lausanne - Kenyan athletics must conform to doping guidelines before April 5 or face their athletes being banned for the Rio Olympics, world anti-doping body WADA suggested on Tuesday.

With some 40 Kenyan athletes caught up in drug scandals in three years and athletics supremo Isaac Mwangin being suspended for corruption involving cover ups, Kenya has been told to enact reform.

"They are very well aware of what they need to do. They need to reply to us by April 5," said WADA president Craig Reedie.

"They simply need to do it. If they don't do it my compliance review committee will take the matter further," insisted the Briton, adding a declaration of non-compliance was possible after WADA had brought to light institutionalised doping in Kenya.

"We understand funding is now available and they (Kenya) need to pass legislation, we know the type of legislation they are talking about which is acceptable".

Russia is scrambling to enact change in its own athletics scandal to prevent being banned from the Olympics too.
