Rio 2016: Kenya official Sent Home After Posing As A Runner To Give Fake Urine Sample

John Anzrah, coach of the Kenyan track and field team was today sent home from the Rio Olympics after he posed as an athlete to give fake urine sample to anti-doping officials in Rio. The legendary sprinter was caught by doping control officers, who spotted a mismatch on the badge he was wearing.

The athlete he was trying to impersonate was 800-meter runner Ferguson Rotich.

Kenyan Olympic committee chairman Kip Keino immediately denounced the behavior of Anzrah: “He presented himself as an athlete, gave the urine sample and even signed the documents. We cannot tolerate such behavior,”

Keino added.

This is the second time a Kenyan coach has been sent home from the ongoing Olympics in Rio, Brazil after the Team Manager for track and field, Michael Rotich was sent home due to doping bribery allegations.
According to reaport, Mr Rotich appears in an undercover video requesting payment from ” a supposed dopping specialist hired to supply banned substances to a fictional British sports team”
