Reigning African Games 5,000m champion Lilian Kasait has been banned for ten months for use of doping.
Today, the Integrity Unit (AIU) flagged down the former World Cross Country bronze that started in April after she tested positive for Letrozole and all her prizes have been disqualified
“It resulted in an adverse analytical finding for Letrozole, which is prohibited at all times, which was potential anti-doping rule violations (ADRVS) pursuant to Rule 2.1 and Rule 2.2 of the World Athletics Anti-Doping Rules (ADR),” said AIU.
The last time for Kasait to compete was last year where she won the national trials in 5,000m to represent Kenya at the Tokyo Olympic Games where she finished 12th.
She follows other five Kenyan athletes led by Boston and Chicago Marathon champion Lawrence Cherono, Marathoners Philemon Kacheran, Stella Barsosio, Purity Changwony and 1,500m Kumari Taki, Eglay Nalianya, Mathew Kisorio, Justus Kimutai and Morris Munene Gachaga.
Others are Joyce Chepkirui, Paris Marathon champion Paul Lonyangata, Edward Kiprop Kibet, Tabitha Wambui and Vane Nyaboke
