The Athletics Integrity Unit (AIU), an independent global body that manages all doping-related matters, said this month that Kenyan–born Olympic steeplechase champion and world record holder Ruth Jebet, who runs for Bahrain, is being investigated after returning a positive test for the blood booster EPO.
The AIU also confirmed in May that Kenya's former Olympic and three-time world 1,500m champion, Asbel Kiprop, had failed a test for EPO. Kiprop has denied wrongdoing and his case will be heard at an AIU tribunal being held in London next month.
The sport's world governing body, the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF), said on Friday that it had approved new rules which spell out the obligations of its member federations in the fight against doping.
Athletes from Kenya, Ethiopia, Belarus and Ukraine will be tested three times in the 10 months prior to world championships and Olympics. They are in category A which is described as having “member federations majorly at risk of doping.”
Previously, the obligations under the anti-doping code were focused primarily on individuals rather than member federations.
The AIU recommended the new regulations to the IAAF as a crucial step in protecting the integrity of the sport.
