Athletics doping: Kenya misses Wada deadline


Kenya has missed a deadline to prove to the World Anti-Doping Agency (Wada) it is tackling cheating in athletics.

It comes after a spate of positive drugs tests among the country's athletes and fresh allegations of corruption.

The East African country, whose athletes are dominant in distance running, will be given two months to bring in new legislation and funding, or automatically be declared non-compliant with Wada.

That could mean a possible ban from the Olympics, which take place later this year in Brazil, and other major events.
