Barnaba Korir, Athletics Kenya Executive Committee member, said a top athlete had escaped when anti-doping testers from the Athletics Integrity Unit visited their camp this week in Kapsabet, Nandi County in the country's west.
"After testers introduced themselves and why they visited the camp, one athlete left as if to answer a call of nature only to jump through the window and over the fence," Korir told Reuters by phone late on Wednesday.
Umm. If you refuse a test, and I'd say jumping out a window is refusing a test, it's an automatic ban. Why isn't this person's name being released?
LRC Update on 9/24. As of today, we know the name of that athlete and have learned that he has been banned from the sport for 3.5 years. His name was Patrick Siele, a 60:43 half marathoner and 2:11:00 marathoner.
