  2. Asbel Kiprop:

    I have worked so hard to build a career since 2003 when I was 13 years old.

I am accused of something that I have never committed. Athletics runs deep in Kiprop's family. His father David Kebenei represented Kenya at the 1987 All Africa Games in Nairobi, where he finished fourth in the 1,500 meters. Kebenei ran in the golden era of British middle-distance running, competing against current IAAF President Sebastian Coe in the early 1980s. Kiprop's brother Victor Kebenei is an upcoming 800 meters runner.
