So my question is when did blood testing begin in Kenya begin? It was widely revealed in 2012 that there was no such testing and and reports as recently as last year reinforce that position:
"Anti-doping officials have been especially worried about drug testing in Kenya and Ethiopia, the two countries that produce most of the best male runners in the world and a good portion of the best female runners. Neither country has an effective national anti-doping agency, and independent agencies canâ€™t conduct blood tests in either country because there isnâ€™t a World Anti-Doping Agency-accredited lab in the region." (Outside magazine April 2015)
If blood testing is now underway and widespread that is huge news, but if would remain that even a 7-hour warning is unacceptable.
