Kenyan marathon sprinter Samuel Kalalei and comrade Lucy Kabuu, are also on the rundown for those confronting hearings, after both were tested to be positive for a denied substance.
The AIU has said that it will remain transparent to the public, in each phase of their process of managing doping tests, as opposed to publishing details only when procedures are finished.
