ATHENS, Greece (AP) - Both of Kenya's boxers are out of the Olympics, one after a violent attack and the other because of doping allegations, the
International Amateur Boxing Association said Wednesday.
Light flyweight Suleiman Bilali Wanjau, a Nairobi police officer, quit the team after he was injured in a robbery near his home, the association said.
Wanjau wound up sixth in his division at the Sydney Games four years ago.
Kenya's second boxer, bantamweight David Munyasia, was ejected from the games Tuesday by the International Olympic Committee after he tested positive
for a banned stimulant.
The association said it had planned to fill one of the empty spots with a boxer from Namibia, but the Namibian Olympic Committee has said it would be
impossible to get him to Athens in time for the official weigh-in Friday.
