The tampering charge had been posted on their Website and twitter handle has now been withdrawn and treated as an error from their end.

“Information posted recently on the Athletics Integrity Unit’s website and its Twitter account erroneously stated that Mark Otieno Odhiambo was charged with Tampering.” AIU stated.

According to AIU Odhiambo has been charged on the Presence/Use of a Prohibited Substance.

“The AIU apologises for this error and confirms that Mr Odhiambo’s case only concerns the Presence/Use of a Prohibited Substance. That case is currently before the Disciplinary Tribunal and no further comment will be made whilst the matter is pending.” said AIU.

AIU issued disciplinary proceedings against Odhiambo for the Presence/Use of a Prohibited Substance (19-Norandrosterone) which is a violation of the World Athletics Anti-Doping Rules and his case has been forwarded to the Disciplinary Tribunal (DT) for sentencing.
