The Athletics Integrity Unit has banned Kenyan marathoner Samuel Kalalei for four years after being found guilty of doping.
The ban means that all Samuel’s events after the Netherlands marathon stand disqualified.
The marathoner finished seventh in the race in a personal best time of two hours and 10 minutes.

Kenya has lately been on the wrong side of doping agency and the reputation of athletes has tainted. Asbel Kiprop was on the wrong side of the agencies after testing positive but he refuted the claims saying that it was all a step up as the parties involved in testing him were after his money.
Other athletes banned by AIU include Eliud Magut and Suleiman Kipses Simotwo who were both handed four year bans.
In a recent report by the World Anti-Doping Agency, Kenyan athletes who tested positive are over 130 between the year 2004 and 2018.
