Kenyan Runner Daniel Wanjiru has been suspended by the Athletics Integrity Unit (AIU) for a period of four years for the use of a banned substance.

He was charged in April 2020 by the AIU for abnormalities in his Athlete Biological Passport (ABP) that apparently indicated the use of a banned substance.

The 28-year-old was informed during a Zoom meeting on the 25th of September. 

He won the 2016 Amsterdam marathon and Prague half marathon as well as the 2017 London Marathon.

His personal bests are marathon 2:05:21, half-marathon 59:51 and 27:43 over 10K.

Wanjiru is another in a long list of approximately 60 Kenyans who are currently suspended for testing positive, missing repeated tests or abnormalities in the ABP. In January former world record holder Wilson Kipsang was suspended for doping.

Wanjiru’s results will be erased dating back to March 9, 2019.
