Former Athletics Coach banned for 10 years over corrupt allegations


Former Kenya athletics team manager, Michael Rotich has been banned for 10 years from the sports after he agreed to providing advance notice to athletes of doping tests in exchange for money.

Rotich corrupt act was brought into light by two undercover journalists from the Sunday Times in an article published in August 2016 and was sent home in disgrace from the Olympic Games in Rio which were underway at the time.

He was also provisionally banned by the IAAF from his coaching job.

In a statement released by the IAAF Ethics Board panel, it said Rotich had offered to warn athletes of impending tests so they could flush doping substances from their system in order to circumvent tests.
