Kenya seasoned sports Journalist Carol Radull has cried foul after her close friend Mark Otieno failed doping test after anabolic androgenic steroid traces were found on his urine test. 

The Kenyan sprinter has been provisionally suspended just hours before he was to take to the track at the Tokyo Olympics.

According to a Kenya's Chef de mission in Tokyo Waithaka Kioni: "He has however denied any knowledge of the violation and has subsequently requested a re-analysis of his B urine sample."

The test was carried out on 28 July while the athlete was at the Olympic village in Tokyo, before that he had been at a training camp in Japan between 15 and 24 July.

Otieno Odhiambo competed at the 2017 World Championships and the 2018 Commonwealth Games.
