The Betrayal of Kenya's Athletes

Channel 4

Unreported World

Go to About Section

Former Paralympian Ade Adeptitan investigates the crisis in Kenyan athletics. Kenya dominates distance running, but over 40 of its runners have been banned since 2012 for using performance enhancing drugs.

Working with director Karolina Mottram and producer Callum Macrae, he uses secret filming to show how the athletics authorities have failed to put in place proper safeguards against doping, betraying athletes who run clean of performance enhancing drugs.
