This comes after the country’s troubled Olympic Committee refused to make changes to its constitution. The IOC said it would discuss the matter at its executive board meeting in Pyeongchang South Korea next week to decide on any further action.



The IOC wants a series of new regulations addressing issues of good governance within the country’ Olympic committee which has been marred by issues on doping, mismanagement and political pressure.

An IOC ban would mean Kenya, which finished second behind the United States in the track medals table in the Rio Olympics, would not be allowed to send a team to the Olympics or participate in an IOC-run event while it is suspended.
