KAPSABET (KEN): Many of Rosa Associati's Kenyan athletes have spoken out in support of their management group, report 
allafrica.com. The athletes said that they would welcome any investigations into them, as well as the management, as they have nothing to hide. World 1500m champion Asbel Kiprop told the media; "We are running clean. I have been managed by Rosa many years and I haven't heard him telling us to use blood boosters. Rita might have been misadvised by someone outside the management or through medication." NYC Marathon runner up Jemimah Sumgong urged Rita Jeptoo to reveal the details regarding her failed doping test. Other athletes at the meeting were; former World 800m champion Janeth Jepkosgei, two-time London marathon winner Martin Lel, World 800 m champion Eunice Sum, former World 800m champion Alfred Kirwa Yego, World 5000m silver medallist Mercy Cherono and Olympic marathon silver medallist Priscah Jeptoo.
