Also, some notes on the other listed athletes in the article:
This is Mercy Kibarus' (prohibited substance) second time failing a drug test- the first was back in 2015 at the Lady's Half Marathon in Kenya. She's had Visa woes since (she claims due to the doping scandal) and has not raced since 2017, when she ran 2:26. Back then she said: “I’m innocent because I have never taken any drugs to help me ran faster. Besides, I have severally proven my innocence but the Adak people have refused to clear me. I don’t know why."
We last saw Patrick Seale (evading/refusing/failing to submit a sample) in 2000m at the impossible games (DNF). Previously he won the Bucharest half in 2018 around 61 flat, and has run close to 60 three times internationally, 1 of which was a win (Agadir). Also has a pr of 2:10 in the marathon.
Kenneth Kipkemoi (prohibited substance) ran 59:01 in 2014 at Valencia and 2:05:44 in 2018 at Rotterdam.
Is Patrick Seale part of Potato Tim’s and Manangoingtojail’s group?
