Accident rules out Kenya trio

DOHA, May 13 – Kenyan trio Micah Kogo, Bernard Kiplagat and Moses Masai have pulled out of the opening leg of the 14-event Diamond League series in Doha following a car accident, their agent said on Thursday.

The middle distance specialists were on their way to Nairobi when they were involved in a crash that left them with light bruising but otherwise unhurt, their agent Ricky Simms said.

Kogo won bronze in the 10,000m at the Beijing Olympics in 2008, Masai was third in the same event at the 2009 world championships while Kiplagat was due to participate in the 5000m in Doha.

The IAAF-sanctioned Diamond League makes its debut this year and replaces the six-event Golden League series.
