World Athletics v Mercy Jerotich Kibarus

World Athletics v Mercy Jerotich Kibarus

A decision in the case of World Athletics against Mercy Jerotich Kibarus has been issued by the Disciplinary Tribunal.

On 11 March 2020 the AIU issued Ms Kibarus with a Notice of Charge for committing an Anti-Doping Rule Violation in connection with the presence of a Prohibited Substance in the Athletes Sample.

The Disciplinary Tribunal consisting of Dennis Koolaard as sole arbitrator determined that an Anti-Doping Rule Violation (ADRV) was established pursuant to Article 2.1 of the 2019 IAAF Rules, and as a result of this being Ms Kibarus’ second ADRV, an eight-year period of Ineligibility is imposed. Ms Kibarus’ competition results between 13 September 2019 and 5 December 2019 are disqualified.

Sport Resolutions is the independent secretariat to the World Athletics Disciplinary Tribunal.
