A top Kenyan athlete has fled from a training camp in order to evade anti-doping officials this weekend. BBC News reports that the anti-doping team turned up unannounced at the training camp in Kapsabet in the west of Kenya. Barnaba Korir of Athletics Kenya confirmed the incident, but did not give the runner's name. Two athletes, including world under-20 champion Alfred Kipketer, were last week suspended for doping violations.
