Kenya’s former world junior 800 metres champion Alfred Kipketer has been suspended for violating anti-doping rules.

Kipketer stays suspended until his case has been heard and a final decision reached.

According to the World Anti-Doping Agency (Wada) rules, athletes are required to submit details of their location and activities for one hour every day, plus overnight accommodation and training information, in case they are needed for out-of-competition testing.

These details are filled in forms in a system called Anti-Doping Administration & Management System (ADAMS).
