ADAK 2017 ADAK vs Hillary Kipkosgei Yego

In April 2017 the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) has reported an anti-doping rule violation against the Kenyan Athlete Hillary Kipkosgei Yego after his sample tested positive for the prohibited substance 19-norandrosterone (Nandrolone). After notification a provisional suspension was ordered and the Athlete filed a statement in his defense.

The Athlete admitted the violation, waived his right for a hearing, accepted the test result and the sanction proposed by the Anti-Doping Agency of Kenya (ADAK). In his submission the Athlete stated that he injected himself the substance as treatment for his injuries without any further evidence in support. Neither did he mention his treatment on the Doping Control Form.

The Panel finds that the anti-doping rule violation has been established and that the Ahtlete failed to demonstrate to the comfortable satisfaction of the Panel how the prohibited susbstance entered his system.
Therefore the Judiciary Office of the Kenya Sports Disputes Tribunal decides on 27 February 2019 to impose a 4 year period of ineligibility on the Athlete starting on the date of the provisional suspension, i.e. on 27 April 2017.
