  • Kipsang noted that lately, Kenyan athletes were being banned for violating the whereabouts rules and not for taking banned substances.  
  • “I know I am still under suspension but I am ready to partner with Athletics Kenya, Athletes Integrity Unit (AIU) and Anti-Doping Agency of Kenya (Adak) to sensitise athletes on this issue of the whereabouts,” said  Kipsang, who challenged Kenyan athletes reprimanded for doping violations to come out and talk about it.
