      Well known dopers. If you took note in the build up to the Olympics, after Russia, Kenya was next on the list.

      Culled from Guardian (the UK one) –
      Kenya has passed new anti-doping legislation in a bid to comply with international standards amid fears its athletes could be banned from participating in the Olympic games in Rio.

      The amended bill was signed by president Uhuru Kenyatta just two days after the International Olympic Committee (IOC) said competitors from Russia and Kenya would have to be screened individually if they wished to participate in the Games.

      Thomas Bach, the IOC president, said on Tuesday that allegations of a systematic doping cover-up in Kenyan athletics had put “serious doubts on the presumption of innocence of athletes”.
