Mark Otieno tests positive

Kenya’s Mark Otieno Odhiambo, a 100m sprinter, has tested positive for a banned substance and will not take part in the Olympic qualifying heats on Saturday.

“We have received communication this afternoon from International Testing Agency (ITA) regarding one of our sprinters who has had an adverse analytical finding on a urine sample he provided on 28 July 2021,” said Waithaka Kioni, Team Kenya’s head of delegation.

“He has, however, denied any knowledge of the violation and has subsequently requested a re-analysis of his B urine sample,” Kioni said.

Odhiambo, who has a personal best of 10.05 seconds, finished second at the national trials last month.
