Four Kenyans Sanctioned for Drug Violations Including the 2017 World 1500m Champ

Manangoi has been provisionally suspended in a case of whereabouts failures.  A whereabouts violation constitutes of any combination of three missed tests or filing failures in a 12-month period, according to the World Athletics anti-doping rules.  Athletes must provide doping officials with their whereabouts, or locations to be available for out-of-competition testing. Three missed tests in a 12-month span can lead to a suspension, even if an athlete has never tested positive.
