KCB teams undergo ant-doping training
Anti-Doping Association of Kenya has conducted an anti-doping training for KCB teams at the Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development (KICD).
The sports men and women have been taken through anti-doping rules violations, the Doping Control Process as well as the World Anti-Doping Agency’s (WADA) prohibited list.
KCB FC, Volleyball and Chess teams were present in today’s workshop. Due to tight fixtures from the ongoing Kenya Cup 2021/2022, the Rugby team did not participate in the training.
Speaking after the event, KCB FC head coach Zedekiah ‘Zico’ Ochieng lauded the association for an eye-opening workshop which has been of help in shedding light to the athletes in as far as doping is concerned.
“This training is really important to all our athletes because we have seen locally and even oversees players being suspended or expelled from clubs because of doping related issues. Andre Onana of Ajax FC was suspended for over 6 months for doping allegations.
“You can imagine the ripple effect this can have on the professionals’ careers. We appreciate the association for this initiative,” said.
The association has consistently expressed its commitment in promoting fair play to ensure there is a level playing field for fair competition.
