DORCUS Inzikuru has pulled out of the inaugural 20km World Road Running championship, preferring to concentrate on a shorter 5km road race in France. The world event is due in Debrecen, Hungary on Sunday.
According to Inzikuru’s manager, Flavio Pasqualato, the World and commonwealth 3000m steeplechase champion, has preferred to run in the October 15 event where a vehicle is at stake.
“After analysing her situation, it was discovered she was not yet fit enough to take on the world’s best. They had to look for a more convenient race which they got in France,” said Pasqualato.
Inzikuru (left) also made a last minute withdrawal from her title defence of Saturday’s Newcastle 3km road race, which was won by Ethiopian Masaret Defar
Her withdrawal leaves Uganda with only the men’s team of James Kibet, Martin Toroitich, Wilson Busienei and Alex Malinga at the event that replaces the half marathon.

r LAUSANNE, Switzerland — Athletes who buy supplements and vitamins from unchecked sources are increasingly putting themselves at risk of inadvertent doping, experts have warned.
Some supplement manufacturers were putting false information on labels and traces of steroids had been found even in vitamin C tablets bought over the counter, an international symposium heard.
“We are finding new steroids every week and...we think it is clear that the situation has got worse,” Hans Geyer of the Cologne-based German Sport University told the three-day doping symposium organised by the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF).
“Since 2003, we have also detected products intentionally faked with high amounts of classic anabolic steroids including metandienone, stanozol, boldenone and oxandrolone, sourced mainly from Chinese pharmaceutical companies which sell bulk material of anabolic steroids," Geyer said.
The new designer steroids being sold had rapidly increased since an international study in 2001.
