Kenyan Marathoner Racheal Mutgaa Banned Three Years For Doping

In the latest suspension announced by the Athletics Integrity Unit (AIU), the Kenyan marathon runner, Racheal Mutgaa, has been banned for three years for testing positive for testosterone.

In a statement shared by AIU on Twitter, samples picked from the marathoner showed presence and use of a prohibited substance. “Therefore, on 3 August 2021, the AIU notified the Athlete of the Adverse Analytical Finding in accordance with Article 5.1.2.1 of the ISRM, including that the Adverse Analytical Finding may result in Anti-Doping Rule Violations pursuant to Rule 2.1 ADR and/or Rule 2.2 ADR and of the imposition of an immediate Provisional Suspension,” AIU said in a statement.

Mutgaa last race was in May when she competed in the Women’s Marathon in Milan, Italy, where she took the second position.

The 32-year-old made a name for herself when she won the DOZ Lodz Marathon, with the greatest highlight of her career coming in 2019 when she set a course record to win the Hannover Marathon.
