IAAF v Abraham Kiptum

IAAF v Abraham Kiptum

A decision in the case of the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) v Abraham Kiptum has been published by the Disciplinary Tribunal.

On 3rd April 2019 Mr Kiptum was charged by the Athletics Integrity Unit (AIU) with an anti-doping rule violation in connection with abnormalities in the haematological module of his Athlete Biological Passport that are alleged to indicate blood manipulation.

The Disciplinary Tribunal panel, consisting of Michael J Beloff QC, Paul Ciucur and Dennis Koolaard, found that the athlete had committed an anti-doping rule violation pursuant to Article 2.2 of the 2018 IAAF rules and therefore ruled that a period of ineligibility of four years would be imposed upon Mr Kiptum. 

The secretariat to the Disciplinary Tribunal is managed by Sport Resolutions.

A copy of the full decision can be accessed via the related documents tab on the right-hand side.
