NAIROBI (AFP) – The former head of athletics in Kenya, under investigation for corruption and a doping cover-up, died on Wednesday aged 72, his family said.
Isaiah Kiplagat ran Athletics Kenya for 23 years, but his career ended in disgrace in November when he was suspended along with two others, accused of corruption and covering up doping among Kenyan runners, over 40 of whom have been banned since 2012.
Family members said the former International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) council member had been suffering from cancer and died on Wednesday morning.
