Former marathon world record holder Wilson Kipsang of Kenya has been handed a four-year ban for anti-doping rule violations (ADRVs) that included using a fake photo of a traffic accident to justify one of four missed whereabouts appointments, the Athletics Integrity Unit (AIU) said on Friday.

World Athletics said Kipsang, a bronze medallist at the 2012 Olympics had four whereabouts failures between April 2018 and May 2019. Three such failures within 12 months lead to an automatic ban.

Kipsang, 38, said he missed a test on May 17, 2019, due to a traffic accident involving an overturned lorry and also provided a photo of the crash.
