Kenya’s 800m Bronze Medalist, Kipyegon Bett Suspended Over Doping

Kenya’s Kipyegon Bett, who was a bronze medallist in the 800m at the 2017 world championships in London, was suspended on Thursday for “refusing or failing to submit” to a drugs test, the Athletics Integrity Unit (AIU) announced.

“@AIU _Athletics issues a Notice of Charge against Kipyegon Bett for refusing or failing to submit to sample collection, Article 2.3 of the antidoping rules,” tweeted the organisation.

“The Kenyan middle-distance runner is provisionally suspended from all competition.”
Thursday’s decision is the latest blow suffered by African athletics after the AIU in July also suspended marathon runners Samuel Kalalei of Kenya and Ethiopia’s Lucy Kabuu on the same charge.
