The national anti-doping body of Kenya has seized a smuggled shipment of medication which can be used by athletes as performance-enhancing drugs.

A woman was arrested on suspicion of smuggling the drugs and will appear in court this week.  She was arrested at the Jomo Kenyatta Airport in Nairobi in a joint operation by Police and anti-doping officials.

Authorities say the illegal consignment contained 150 boxes of triamcinolone acetonide and other doping materials, including more than 500 boxes of other medications.

Kenya has a serious doping problem and is classed as a high-risk country by track and field’s international anti-doping body.
