World Athletics 2023 WA vs Caroline Chepkoech Kipkirui

In February 2024 the Athletics Integrity Unit (AIU), on behalf of World Athletics, reported an anti-doping rule violation against the Kazakh Kenyan Athlete Caroline Chepkoech Kipkirui. The AIU deemed that the Athlete had 3 Whereabouts Failures within a 12 month period:

  • a Filing Failure on 9 February 2023;
  • a Missed Test and Filing Failure on 19 June 2023; and
  • a Missed Test and Filing Failure on 27 November 2023.

Although the Athlete submitted her explanations to the AIU the Whereabouts Failures were recorded. In any case the Athlete did not file a request for an adminstrative review.

Following notification the Athlete gave a timely admission, waived her right for a hearing, accepted a provisional suspension and the sanction proposed by the AIU. Furthermore she signed and submitted the Admission of Anti-Doping Rule Violation and Acceptance of Consequences Form.

Therefore the AIU decides on 7 March 2024 to impose a 2 year period of ineligibility on the Athlete, starting on the date of the provisional suspension, i.e. on 21 February 2024.
