Athlete Rita Jeptoo, this year’s winner of Boston and Chicago marathons, risks being stripped all her titles and being banned for two years after her B sample tests positive of banned substance Erythropoietin (EPO).

In November, her ‘A’ sample tested positive for blood-boosting drug Erythropoietin (EPO).

Athletics Kenya (AK) CEO Isaac Mwangi later released a statement indicating that Jeptoo had said she wanted her ‘B’ sample to be analysed to ascertain the validity of her failed doping test.
