Athletics Kenya said on Monday it had suspended two foreign agencies for six months from managing its athletes pending investigations into allegations of doping that have rattled a nation famed for its distance runners. The suspension of Rosa & Associati, run by Rosa, an Italian, and Volare Sports, run by Dutchman Gerard van de Veen, is a blow to several well-known athletes who are managed by the agencies.

Sir Craig Reedie (C), president of the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA), addresses the audience as (L-R) President of Jamaica's Olympic Association (JOA) Michael Fennell, Secretary General of JOA Christopher Samuda, Jamaica's Minister with responsibility for sports Natalie Neita-Headley and Chairman of Jamaica's Anti-Doping Commission (JADCO) Danny Williams listen, in Kingston February 24, 2015. Jamaica has made progress towards beefing up drug-testing and repairing its tarnished sprinting reputation following a string of doping scandals, Reedie told Reuters on Tuesday. He arrived in Jamaica on Friday to check on the Caribbean sprint capital's anti-doping efforts after high-profile positive tests around the 2012 London Olympics raised red flags over the island's drug-testing.
