Unlike many others, Elijah Manangoi has taken his punishment by the Athletics Integrity Unit due to his 3 whereabout failures. I have to admit that the three excuses on the whereabouts misses are, perhaps, all time classics.

None the less, Elijah Manangoi has taken his punishment and we will see him in 2 years…

NAIROBI (KEN): Kenya’s 2017 world 1500m champion Elijah Manangoi has accepted the two year suspension imposed on him by the AIU for three whereabouts failures. He said: “I have received the verdict from AIU and as I sit here, I have acknowledged that I made a mistake on my whereabouts failures and I have accepted their decisions, though it will be difficult to forgive myself. I’m a clean athlete and I will be back on track and win right.”
