Can't wait for ross tucker to weigh in
I don’t mean to be flippant - Kiprop for EPO is a massive story - but there’s always some surprise when a top, top athlete is actually caught for doping. We all know that what is revealed is the tip of the proverbial iceberg.
Korir (hon wesley): #Rosamustgo when can we say enough is enough ? 90% of good Kenyan athletes got with doping have come from one agency. I am now making it my duty that Rosa and associates are kicked out of Kenya and never allowed to represent Kenyan athletes it is now or never. Get ready !!
Asbel Kiprop’s statement on his EPO positive. It boils down to: He paid a bribe to doping officials not knowing it was a bribe, but didn’t pay enough (he wasn’t told this), so they contaminated his sample. He then got told to confess to doping in order to be made an ambassador… // There’d be a record of this payment, of course. The extortion part I can actually believe - they call him up the night before with a tip-off that they’re coming to do a test, they expect a little gratitude. The rest of the dots need a little more creativity (or something) to join. // So the tip-off happened. That’s the least surprising part of Kiprop's defense statement - getting a tip-off is a big reason athletes have wanted to train there (& in Ethiopia). Also true that Kiprop paid. Also not surprising. I wonder how many payments and from how many athletes?
Trying to throw the IAAF itself under the bus along with everyone else doesn't seem like the brightest move? Having read the AIU statement it sounds not surprisingly that they are a bit hacked off with his mud slinging and now MORE likely to throw the book at him.
