Kenyan long-distance runner, Biwott banned for eight years

Marathon runner, Salome Jerono Biwott has been handed an eight (8) year sanction for committing a second doping violation.

The Kenyan failed to respond to the notice of charge from the Athletics Integrity Unit (AIU).  Biwott had tested positive for the banned substance of Norandrosterone in April during the Sao Paulo International Marathon, where she finished second.

This is Salome’s second doping violation as she had failed another test in 2012 and was consequently banned for two (2) years.

The AIU announced, “The athlete failed to respond by the specified deadline of July 11, 2019.” The 36-year old is the latest Kenyan athlete to be caught doping and now faces an eight (8) year suspension.
