German Olympian calls for more drug testing on Jamaican track stars

German discus thrower and Olympic champion Robert Harting

German discus thrower Olympic champion Robert Harting has called for investigations into Jamaican and Kenyan athletes following the recent Russian doping revelations.

As a result of the government-sanctoned violation of doping rules, the IAAF announced on Friday that Russia was temporarily suspended from all international athletic competitions. The announcement was made at the IAAF Council Meeting held by teleconference and chaired by IAAF’s new president Sebastian Coe.

Harting argues that doping is more widespread than just Russia and pointed to Kenya and Jamaica as the main suspects for drug enhancement among athletes.
