Mark Kangogo's suspension is final. The Athletics Integrity Unit informed us today that the athlete concerned "has acknowledged the offence, accepted a sanction and waived his right to appeal". As a reminder, the athlete tested positive for two substances prohibited by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) during the49th edition of Sierre-Zinal.
The Men's ranking has been adapted in the "Runner" category (see the official ranking). The organisation's regulations stipulate that the prize money of tested athletes is suspended until the anti-doping tests are obtained. These prizes are released once the negative tests are confirmed by the UIA. Therefore, Mark Kangogo's prize money has not been paid and will be redistributed according to the new ranking by the Sierre-Zinal organisation.
