Kenya has avoided been sanction by World Athletics for the increasing number of doping cases in the country.
This is after the government moved to increase anti-doping funding with an allocation of Sh619 million annually for the next five years. World Athletics President Seb Coe said that the funding will help increase the number of tests, investigations besides bolstering the already
comprehensive education programs by Athletics Kenya and Anti-Doping Agency of Kenya (ADAK).
Addressing a conference after the World Athletics Council meeting in Rome, Italy on Wednesday, Coe said that its arm of integrity, Athletics Integrity Unit (AIU), will now work closely with Kenya to implement the next phase of the war against doping.
"The Kenyan federation and government feel this (doping) has been a disfiguring period in what should have been a Herculean period for Kenyan athletics," Coe said after a World Athletics Council meeting in Rome.
