President of Kenya signs anti-doping law before WADA deadline for Rio 2016


President Uhuru Kenyatta has signed into law an anti-doping bill that could allow Kenya to compete at the Olympics Games in Rio in August after missing two deadlines set by the World Anti-Doping Agency.

To show it was tackling cheating in sport, the new law creates a national agency, which allows those found guilty of doping to be imprisoned and fined. This comes after International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) President threatened Kenya with a ban if it didn’t pass the bill into law.
