In an effort to help embattled former Olympic and world 1,500m champion Asbel Kiprop, a family meeting has been convened for Monday 29 in Simat village, Uasin Gishu county.
Kiprop vented his anger on social media following a four-year ban by the World Anti Doping Agency (WADA).
Veteran athletics coach David Leting told Daily Active Kenya on Sunday that everything is now under control and there is no cause for alarm because close friends and family members have reached out to Kiprop for counselling.
“We have reached out to those close to Kiprop and I can say he is alright. We hope a meeting with his immediate family members today will help to get him strong again because we adore him and the glory he brought to us,” said Leting.
Kiprop, who is also a police constable, took to Twitter at the weekend to vent his frustrations and anger, daring his National Police Service to sack him and withdraw his firearm before he uses it to “earn justice”.
This was after Athletics body IAAF banned the athlete for four years after it was found out that Kiprop had failed the doping tests.
