Athletics Integrity Unit (AIU) has suspended Kenya’s long distance athlete Mathew Kisorio for whereabouts failure.
This is the second time that Kisorio is facing a run in with the AIU, having been handed a two-year doping ban in 2012.
The AIU has banned long distance runner Morris Gachaga of Kenya for 2 yrs for Whereabouts failures. Two other athletes Mathew Kisorio and Justus Kimutai, both from Kenya, have been provisionally suspended for Whereabouts failures.

The athlete has missed three tests under the whereabouts rule. The offense occurred between January 2021 to 2022.
The World Junior 5,000m silver medalist could face up to eight-year ban because of being a repeat offender.
Justus Kimutai also received the suspension though he claims to have informed the AIU of being outside the country at the said period.
