When I learn about a drug positive I have two simultaneous thoughts. One is that any positive test means that AIU is doing its job. The second is, an athlete who tests positive has made a business decision, and they do not believe that the chances of being caught are worth the risk.

MONACO (MON): World Athletics Disciplinary Tribunal has banned long-distance runner Daniel Wanjiru of Kenya for four years with effect from 09 Dec 2019, for an Athlete Biological Passport (ABP) violation. He has been suspended since 14 April 2020. It also means his two London races from 2019 will be cancelled, third place Big Half in March (61:17) and 11th place at London Marathon (2:08:40).
