Kenyans deliver when called upon and we know it will happen in Athens. AK secretary general, David Okeyo." >>

    Athletics Kenya (AK) chairman Isaiah Kiplagat has threatened to ban agents, who have turned some of Kenya’s top runners into pace setters for their rivals.

    Kiplagat said he was dismayed that some of the top runners were being used as pace setters in Grand Prix meetings for Ethiopians to break records. >>

    So he's going to deprive them of a payday to save national pride?

    This rhetoric is such sour grapes - bad sportsmanship. He should keep the trap shut and as the slogan goes - Just Do It.
