Kenya – Former Olympic 1500m champion, Asbel Kiprop, has denied reports that he failed an out-of-competition drugs test.
The 28-year-old three-time world champion reportedly tested positive for banned blood-boosting agent EPO.
He said in a statement: “I have been at the forefront of the fight against doping in Kenya – a fight I strongly believe in and support.
“I would not want to ruin all I have worked for since my first international race in 2007. I hope I can prove that I am a clean athlete in every way possible.”
