Top Kenyan athletes’ names featured in alleged leaked Athlete Biological Passport (ABP) results file, according to the latest Fancy Bears leak published on Wednesday.

The leaked document, under the heading ‘Hematological Expert report opinion’, names nine Kenyan stars dating back 2013 to 2016, but who we cannot name for legal reasons.

In front of each athlete’s name, the leaked data indicates; Likely doping; Passport suspicious: further data is required; Passport suspicious: further data is required.

The list has more than 40 athletes worldwide. Among them is reigning Olympic and World 10,000m champion Mo Farah, whose Athlete Biological Passport test record on November 23, 2015 is marked thus: ‘Likely doping; Passport suspicious: further data is required.’

The hacked document has prompted Farah to respond to the allegations stressing through a spokesman that he has “never failed a blood test”.

“We have never been informed of any of Mo’s test results being outside of the legal parameters,” a spokesperson said.

Previous leaks

“Nor has Mo ever been contacted by the IAAF about any individual result. It is totally incorrect and defamatory to suggest otherwise, and we will pursue any claims to the contrary through all necessary legal routes,” a quote attributed to Farah on BBC reads.

“It has been widely reported that previous leaks from this organisation have included false or altered documents, and we have asked the IAAF to urgently look into the validity.

“Regardless, any suggestion of misconduct is entirely false and seriously misleading. Mo Farah has been subjected to many blood tests during his career and has never failed a single one.”

Athletics Kenya have since downplayed the leaked files, saying they are in touch with IAAF and runners named should not make any conclusion on the matter.

“For athletes mentioned in today’s article, we are in touch with IAAF. We would like to advise all not to make any conclusions at this stage. We shall continue to follow up and advise when any other development is received. For now, continue with your normal training,” AK president Jackson Tuwei posted on a social media forum, Whatsapp, where the article was shared.
