Three Kenyan athletes have been banned for a collective period of eight years after breaking anti-doping rules. 

The Athletics Integrity Unit (AIU) has banned marathon runners Alice Jepkemboi Kimutai and Johnstone Kibet Maiyo for three years, and sprinter Mark Otieno for two. 

 While Otieno was banned for testing positive for the banned anabolic steroid Methasterone moments before the 100m heats at the Tokyo Olympic Games, Kimutai was banned for testing positive for the male hormone testosterone – 

 Maiyo’s ban started on 20 July for returning a positive test for erythropoietin (EPO).
