irobi, Jan 12: Athletics Kenya will hold a semir on January 16 targeting 108 elite athletes, coaches and magers who have been invited in order to be briefed on the governing body's new medical regulations as they strive to elimite doping in the country. The federation will hold a meeting in the Kenyan city of Eldoret. Kenya has registered over 40 cases in the last two years of doping and though it was not reprimanded like Russia and stopped from competing at the Rio Olympics, it is being watched keenly by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA).
"As a top athletics federation and country, we cannot continue to be doubted by the world," Athletics Kenya chief Jack Tuwei said on Wednesday.
Tuwei said it would be mandatory for elite athletes to go through the newly formed Kenyan Doctors Network (KDN) if they wanted to participate in intertiol competitions. IANS
