President Bach visits Kip Keino High School in Kenya

IOC President Thomas Bach arrived in Kenya on Sunday to visit the schools and orphanage set up by Kenyan sporting legend and IOC honorary member Kip Keino.

While at the Kip Keino High School, the President opened a new multipurpose hall and met the pupils. 

Later he visited a training centre for athletes run by Kip Keino, and met athletes from Kenya and across Africa.

During the visit, Mr Keino also addressed the recent issues linked to drug testing of Kenyan athletes. He said that the investigation by a government-led anti-doping task force had recently finished, and its findings would be released shortly.

Accompanying President Bach and honorary member Keino were IOC member in Kenya Paul Tergat, ANOCA President Lassana Palenfo and IOC member in Ethiopia Dagmawit Girmay Berhane.
