Asbel Kiprop, the 2008 Olympic 1500 meters champion has got Kenyans on the edge of their seats with fear after a video of him speeding on highway emerged online.

In the video, Asbel is seen driving at a speed of 160 kph without a safety belt on.


Kiprop is currently serving a four-year ban slapped on him last year after failing an out of competition doping test.

Recently, the athlete expressed interest of going back to the field but this time not in the track field but the racing side. Well we might say that he was practicing his next sport.

“I am ready to begin again in a sport that doesn’t have doping conspiracy. I will be patient again to be able to be a champion. I will be climbing the ladder hoping to learn the next game,” he posted on his Facebook account.

However, the incident of him speeding did not sit well with most Kenyans who felt he was endangering his life.

The video of the police officer from Uasin Gishu County might just be an indicator all is not well with the athlete.
