The Athlete filed a statement in her defence and she was heard for the Kenya Judiciary Office of the Sports Disputes Tribunal.

The Athlete admitted the violation, accepted the test result, denied the intentional use of the substance and requested for a reduced sanction. She explained with medical evidence that she suffered from asthma, underwent treatment in a hostpital and had used prescribed Salbutamol through an inhaler.

The Panel accepts that the violation was not intentional and that she established No Significant Fault or Negligence in this case. Therefore the Kenya Judiciary Office of the Sports Disputes Tribunal decides on 16 January 2019 to impose a 1 year period of ineligibility on the Athlete starting on the date of the provisional suspension, i.e. on 1 April 2018.
