#HNNSports #Boston Marathon Champion Rita Jeptoo Tests Positive For Banned Substance

RunBlogRun reported 33-year-old Rita Jeptoo failed a doping test administered in Kenya in September.

Kenyans have what it takes for these marathons but has Rita put a dent in the whole East African appeal? I say yes! Now every other marathon winner is SUSPECT!

In a statement on WMM’s website, WMM General Counselman Nick Bitel offered a scathing quote on impurity in the sport:

WMM has always held a stern line on drugs cheats and has been proactively supporting the sports governing bodies to ensure the integrity of the athletes competing in their races. Cheats need to understand that they are not welcome in our sport and that they will be caught.

Frederica Rosa, Jeptoo’s agent, confirmed the test results to the Associated Press. The International Association of Athletics Federations has not yet announced a course of disciplinary action. Am I waiting for that? She's already disgraced Africa!!
