Kenya's Nicholas Kosimbei provisionally suspended by AIU

The Athletics Integrity Unit (AIU) has provisionally suspended Kenya's Nicholas Kosimbei for the presence/use of prohibited substance Trimetazidine.

The 26-year-old and the 2014 world U-20 10,000m bronze medalist has been served with the notice over the allegation as investigations continue.

According to AIU, a provisional suspension is when an athlete or other person is suspended temporarily from participating in any competition or activity in athletics prior to a final decision at a hearing conducted under the World Athletics Anti-Doping Rules or the Integrity Code of Conduct.

Kosimbei joins a list of 15 other athletes including compatriot Purity Changwony who was provisionally suspended on July 26, 2022 after testing positive for 19-Norandrosterone, Triamcinolone acetonide.

This suspension adds to the list of 25 Kenyan athletes suspended by AIU and Anti-Doping Agency of Kenya since 2022.
