New anti doping body KDN to conduct doping tests in Eldoret

By KBC Sportsdesk

109 elite Kenyan athletes are scheduled to meet in Eldoret this afternoon with Athletics Kenya officials for a doping test to be conducted by the Kenya Doctors Network body.

The body that was unveiled last week by Athletics Kenya will give athletes advice and clearance before seeking medical attention anywhere.

The team of six professional doctors approved by IAAF will be conducting doping tests to athletes before they participate in any international event.

Elite athletes including Olympic marathon champion Eliud Kipchoge and David Rudisha will benefit from the medical network.

Kenya got into WADA’s cross hairs after the country missed two deadlines to comply with the World Anti Doping Code.

The establishment of ADAK and enactment of anti-doping legislation were listed as key requirements as the anti-doping watchdog clamped down on Kenya to deal with the escalating use of proscribed drugs by the country’s athletes with over 40 serving suspensions since 2012.
