The article doesn't make it 100% clear, but there was at least some altercation between Jeptoo and the testers.
Jeptooâ€™s Aunt, Anne Jemutai Langat told a packed court that the athlete disturbed laboratory attendants in Laussane, Switzerland when she was being subjected to a doping test.
â€œI was called into the Laboratory where the tests were being conducted in 2015 and as I entered the room I found the director shouting and throwing his hands in the air saying she (Jeptoo) had disturbed them,â€ Ms Langat testified.
Ms Langat said she accompanied the marathoner during all the doping tests trials in USA and AK because she had a language hitch.
Ms Lagat said after the Laussane altercation between Ms Jeptoo and the doping experts , she wrote a letter apologising to them as â€œ the athlete had a language handicap.â€
Ms Jeptoo had disclosed to her aunt that she became agitated when she saw the examiners of her specimen mixing them and asking her questions which did not understand.
â€œDid they (examiners) tell you Jeptoo attempted to grab the specimen from them? ,â€ Mr Kemboy asked Ms Langat.
â€œThey did not tell me that but all they reported to me was that she (Jeptoo) disturbed them,â€ Ms Langat answered.
