Athlete Asbel Kiprop says woman in damning video cost him his career, family

Three-time World Champion Asbel Kiprop has come out to accuse a woman of costing him his family and career.

Speaking to a local media house, Kiprop claimed that the woman in the video moves around with many people including elites that he cannot name.

Kiprop’s rejoinder comes after a video of him groping a woman in his car went viral.

In the clip, the 1500 metres athletics champion films himself with a woman in a car listening to some Kalenjin music. The woman’s blouse is fully unbuttoned exposing her bra, and she seductively shakes her body in rhythm to the music playing in the background.  

The video clip ends with the two passionately kissing as Kiprop gropes her with his one hand and the other panning the phone camera for a better view.

According to reports, the woman, a former MCA aspirant in Uasin Gishu County, is married.

The video has emerged barely months after Kiprop was tested positive to a banned energy-enhancing drug by International Athletics Association Federation (IAAF). In his rebuttal, the athlete accused the anti-doping body of tampering with his urine sample.

He is currently awaiting his fate after he submitted a second sample and would face a two-year ban should he test positive.
