Kenyan 5,000 meter runners, Michael Kibet and Daniel Simiyu, will not be allowed to compete at the athletics world championships in Doha after they both failed to meet anti-doping rule requirements.
Athletics Kenya (AK) officials said on Tuesday that they hoped that the Athletics Integrity Unit (AIU) would clear Kibet and Simiyu, who finished first and second at the Kenyan trials, to compete at the global championships that begin on Friday.
AIU rules state that athletes must go through three out-of-competition and one in-competition doping test to be eligible for the world championships.
AK Vice President in charge of competitions, Paul Mutwii, confirmed that the AIU had declined a request to enter Kibet and Simiyu in the global showpiece.
