The Kenyans are dropping like flies. They just keep on getting busted for breaking anti-doping rules. Friday, Norah Jeruto, a former Kenyan was provisionally suspended by the Athletics Integrity Unit (AIU).

She is a steeplechase world champion and the Kazakhstan national record holder with her 8:53.02 performance from Eugene, Oregon last summer. Jeruto has been provisionally suspended for an anti-doping violation, by the AIU on Friday. She recorded an Athletics Biological Passport anomaly.

Jeruto, formerly a Kenyan who switched allegiance to Kazakhstan, won the 3,000-metre steeplechase gold at the 2022 world championships in Eugene.

The AIU said on Twitter that Jeruto had been suspended “for the use of a Prohibited Substance/Method (ABP).”

Jeruto sat out the Tokyo Olympic Games as she had to wait for a standard period of time when changing national allegiances.

She is a six-time Diamond League winner in the event.
