NAIROBI (KEN): Kenya’s government has approved the immediate establishment of the Anti-Doping Agency of Kenya (ADAK), report AP. ADAK will be responsible for doping tests in Kenya, oversee the prosecution of cases, and develop and execute anti-doping rules and regulations. The move comes while the country is under increasing pressure to improve their anti-doping structure due to a spate of high profile positive tests and allegations of complacency.
Editors note: This is welcome news. That the Kenyan Government approves the ADAK is important. For Kenya’s running to be taken seriously, consistent drug testing is paramount.
