NAIROBI Cheap Jerseys China Wholesale , Nov. 5 (Xinhua) -- Kenya's Wilson Kipsang and Mary Keitany who won Sunday's men and women races at New York Marathon on Wednesday
called on Athletics Kenya (AK) and the country's government to clamp down on
substance abuse to safeguard the nation's strong tradition in the sport from
worldwide ridicule.


Kipsang and Keitany won the biggest marathon in numbers against the backdrop of an international storm kicked off by compatriot and female marathon star Rita
Jeptoo having her A-Sample test positive for blood booster EPO.


The raging furor domestically and abroad overshadowed Kipsang's and Keitany's conquering feats of races ran in adverse weather conditions and the two
champions rent their voices to the debate clearly disappointed the rug had been
pulled under their feet.


"It wasn't good news especially to athletes who have been running at the top with good times. It's something government should go deep and intervene to
ensure it doesn't happen again because it doesn't portray a good image of our
country," Kipsang said.


The 32 year-old clinched the World Marathon Majors (WMM) series jackpot worth 500 Cheap Throwback Jerseys , 000 with his 2:09:59 victory at the Big Apple.

"The federation should take action on doping cases because it's given us and our country a tainted image out there," Keitany Cheap Authentic Jerseys , who bagged victory 2:25:05, added.

The pair who completed hard-fought victories over Ethiopia's Lelisa Desisa (men) and compatriot Jemima Sumgong (women) over the last 600m in close dramatic
finishes to both races returned back home on Tuesday night to a rousing
reception from family Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping , relatives and officials of the Professional Athletes Association of Kenya that Kipsang serves as president.


LONDON, Aug. 30 (Xinhua) -- Cars, buses and freight trucks are the principal cause of air pollution in over 95 percent of legally-designated air quality
management areas in Britain, a research team from Bristol reported Tuesday.


Current estimates show that over 50,000 deaths a year can be attributed to an air pollution epidemic in Britain, the report revealed ahead of a debate on
Wednesday at the Royal Geographical Society(with the Institute of British
Geographers) annual conference.


Dr. Tim Chatterton and Prof. Graham Parkhurst from the University of the West of England in Bristol say transport planning in Britain is not sufficiently
taking into account the environmental impacts of transport choices.


The two academics looked at policy and practice activities since a parliamentary environment act in 1995 committed Britain to improving air quality
to internationally accepted standards.


They said measurements in the real environment show that little improvement has been achieved in the past two decades.


Chatterton and Parkhurst have carried out a review to identify the underlying reasons why air pollution concentrations from road transport in Britain have
shown little to-no reduction over the last 21 years.


Their study claims that transport planners in Britain are not taking the environmental impacts of transport choices sufficiently into account.


They say road traffic accidents continue to remain the primary concern of transport planners while, "at best, air pollution has been designated a shared
priority between the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs and the
Department for Transport."


Parkhurst said: "Air pollution is perhaps the grossest manifestation of a general failure of UK transport planning to take the environmental impacts of
transport choices sufficiently into account."


"Insufficient relevant priority has been given within the sector responsible for most relevant emissions -- transport policy and planning -- which has
instead prioritized safety and economic growth," he added.


The academics say their study identifies a strategic policy tone which continues to signal and provide for the private car as central to national
transport policy.


Added to this, they say, is limited government regulation and financial support for alternative modes of transport, as well as more low emissions zones
in towns and cities.


Their report says that a failure to recognize that existing polluting vehicles are being replaced only slowly, the only sure way to bring about
changes in pollution levels is to reduce vehicle use.


"There is a corresponding lack of emphasis on 'push' behavior change policies, to encourage walking and cycling in particular. Instead, policies for
behavior change mostly rely on voluntary measures, which are as a result not
very effective," the two academics say in their report.


Households in poorer areas of Britain's towns and cities tend to be exposed to much higher levels of air pollution, even though they contribute much less to
the traffic pollution principally through driving less.


Parkhurst and Chatterton will tell the conference that their findings confirm the need for air quality to be promoted as a public health priority issue in
Britain.


"Air pollution-related morbidity and mortality are at epidemic levels and, although less obvious, are more significant than road transport collisions as a
cause of death and injury," they said.
