DOHA, Qatar - Kenya has a doping problem, one of the countrys government ministers told The Associated Press, and it also has a plan to clean it up. Jaycob Megna Jersey .Only days after marathon runner Rita Jeptoo was exposed for a positive doping test, Kenyan sports minister Hassan Wario Arero said the country has a very clear roadmap to tackle the problem and will open a new anti-doping agency by the end of the year.The key thing here is acknowledging the problem, that there is a problem (and) although it is drip-drip, that it may become a bigger problem if you dont handle it, Wario, the cabinet secretary at the Ministry of Sports, said in an interview with the AP.Wario blamed sports agents who have infiltrated our camps, and also criticized the Kenyan athletics federation for being unco-operative.Jeptoo, winner of the last two Chicago and Boston Marathons, tested positive for EPO in an out-of-competition test in Kenya on Sept. 25. She is one of the highest profile Kenyan athletes to fail a doping test.In a separate interview with the AP, World Anti-Doping Agency president Craig Reedie pointed to the example of Jamaica, which bolstered its anti-doping program under outside pressure and with outside help following concerns that it wasnt sufficiently testing its world-class sprinters.The world will expect Kenya to do more, in the way that the world expected Jamaica to do more, Reedie said. Jamaica have put their house in order and I hope very much that Kenya will put its house in order.Reedie and Wario plan to hold talks on the sidelines of the Doha Goals sports forum in Qatar.Jeptoos case comes weeks after a Kenyan task force, formed a year ago, released a damaging report into doping in the country.Wario said the report was our way of saying we have nothing to hide. As a country we acknowledge the problems we have.He pointed a finger of blame at the agents managing Kenyan athletes.We need now to understand who these agents are, Wario said. There are many people who have infiltrated our camps.Wario said the countrys new anti-doping agency will have teeth to deal with sports federations that do not co-operate with us, singling out Kenyas athletics federation.They havent been as co-operative as we would have liked them to be, Wario said.The minister said the government is investing $50,000 in the agency, which will get training and expertise from the anti-doping agencies of China and Norway. Samples from doping tests will still be sent to South Africa for analysis, as they are now.We are taking baby steps but I think we are heading in the right direction, Wario said. We have a very clear roadmap.Reedie said he wrote to Kenyan authorities three weeks ago pointing out to them that this situation should not be allowed to continue.He also noted that Kenyas report on doping appears so far to have been followed by relatively little action.They have time to pull this together, Reedie said. I would want to see speedy reaction to the report and to see progress. Teemu Selanne Jersey . -- Louisville backup quarterback Reggie Bonnafon ran for two touchdowns and passed for another and the No. Reto Berra Jersey .Mateo Kovacic and Andrea Ranocchia scored for Inter, which had goalkeeper Samir Handanovic to thank for several crucial saves.Its an important victory against a Chievo side which plays well, Mancini said.HOUSTON -- John Isner apologized for his performance. Dustin Brown said it felt unbelievable. The top-seeded Isner lost to the dreadlocked Brown in the second round of the U.S. Mens Clay Court Championship on Wednesday night. It was Browns first career victory against a top-10 player. The German closed out a 6-4, 6-7 (7), 7-6 (4) win with a forehand winner. "Ive had a lot of matches where Ive played good tennis, where I was close, and youve just got to keep playing," the 29-year-old Brown said. "Ive got to play my tennis. If I start playing the tennis (his opponent) wants, thats not good for me. "Hes been in these situations much more often than me - I got a little tight in the second set, maybe at the end of the third - so I had to try to keep playing. It feels unbelievable." The 6-foot-5 Brown, who dropped each of his previous three matches against opponents ranked 10 or higher, has spent most of his career on the Challenger circuit, where he has won five titles. Chris Wagner Jersey. Isner, ranked No. 9, was the defending champion in Houston. He had 13 aces in the loss. The 6-9 Isner apologized following his post-match interview to a tournament official for a "pathetic performance - Im sorry you had to see that." "I just didnt feel it tonight," he said. American Sam Querrey also advanced with a 6-3, 6-4 victory over No. 7 seed Lleyton Hewitt. Querrey has been struggling, dropping to 82nd in the ATP rankings. Sixth-seeded Juan Monaco beat Somdev Devvarman of India 7-6 (4), 6-2 for his 200th career win on clay. Also advancing was Santiago Giraldo of Colombia. He made short work of Matthew Ebden 6-1, 6-2 to set up a second-round meeting with No. 2 seed, Tommy Robredo, of Spain.
