NAIROBI, July 7 (Xinhua) -- Beijing 2008 Olympics and 2015 world champion Asbel Kiprop led his Rosa Associati stable-mates on Thursday in protesting the detention of their Italian manager, Federico Rosa, maintaining their camps in northern Kenya were not involved in doping.

Top Rosa runners convened a press conference in Eldoret where they called on authorities to convict every doping case individually instead of targeting them as a group by chasing after their manager.

The dismayed athletes, including Kiprop, women' s London Marathon champion, Jemimah Sumgong and New York winner, Stanley Biwott, decried the remanding of Rosa has affected their preparations for the Rio Olympics.

World Half and World Cross silver medallist Bedan Karoki is in the provisional list for Rio at the distance.

Rosa, the scion of Rosa Associati founder, was denied bail and remanded in custody until Friday when he is expected to be brought before Nairobi' s Kibera Law Court and charged with offenses related to doping.

Former employee and fellow Italian, Claudio Berardelli, was also detained until Tuesday after appearing at Nairobi' s Milimani Law Courts later Wednesday in developments that have rocked Kenya' s athletics that has been embroiled in a doping storm for the last two years.

"We have been preparing well at the camps for the Rio Olympics until our manager was arrested and questioned at the CID headquarters in Nairobi over doping allegations and we now fear it will affect our performance and we know very well this is a vice being done by brokers and fake doctors," the 1500m star, Kiprop remarked.

"This came up when big names at the Rosa camp such as Mathew Kisorio and Rita Jeptoo were mentioned but there are other 21 athletes accused of doping from other training camps," the 2010 African champion claimed.

Kenya' s captain to the 2011 Punta Umbria World Cross, Kisorio has since served his suspension while women 800m runner, Agatha Jeruto and the biggest case in the country' s history, three-time Boston and two-time Chicago marathon champion Jeptoo remain suspended.

Sumgong said she has trained for many years at the Rosa camps located in Kaptagat, Uasin Gishu County and Kapsabet, Nandi County in the northern Kenya heartland of distance running and without seeing anyone approaching them to supply prohibited substances or encourage their use.

"Since 2007, I have never experienced any use of performance enhancing drugs," the Rio 2016 Kenyan marathoner added.

After finishing second to compatriot Sharon Cherop at the 2012 Boston Marathon, Sumgong tested positive for the banned substance prednisolone in her post-race anti-doping test and was given a two-year ban by Athletics Kenya.

However, she was cleared on appeal by the IAAF in September 2012, as the local injection which Sumgong had received was permitted under the governing body's rules.

London runner-up, Biwott lamented the arrest and detention of their manager had dumped their motivation to train for the Olympics, saying the move by authorities would be counter-productive.

"We have not been informed fully why our manager is being held and it' s my hope he will not be turned into a victim. Training has become difficult for us," he rued.

Gabrielle and his son Federico Rosa were arrested in Eldoret last Friday by officers of the anti-narcotics department of Police and their hotel room searched before their travel documents were seized and directed to report to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (CID) headquarters in Nairobi where they were interrogated for two days.

The elder Rosa was not brought before court. Enditem

MADRID Puma Fenty Leadcat Pink UK , April 25 (Xinhua) -- Former FC Barcelona coach, Tito Vilanova died on Friday afternoon aged 45 following a two and a half year fight against cancer of the parotid gland, the FC Barcelona announced on its website on Friday afternoon.

Vilanova had undergone emergency surgery on Thursday evening, but his condition continued to worsen in the following hours.

The 45-year-old who had been assistant to Pep Guardiola for four seasons, was diagnosed with the illness in November 2011. But when Guardiola announced he was stepping down as Barca coach in the summer of 2012, he was named as successor and in doing so became the 50th coach in the club's history,

He led the Barcelona to the 2012-13 Primera Liga title, but missed three months of the campaign after his illness returned in December 2012.

A further setback in his health saw him decide to renounce his position in July of last year in order to continue his battle to recover and he was replaced as Barca coach by Gerardo 'Tata' Martino.

FC Barcelona posted a message on the official website, saying: "the Club wishes to express its most heartfelt sympathy to his family, who are being joined in these moments of mourning by FC Barcelona members and fans all around the world, as well as the rest of the footballing and sporting world."

Barcelona will also open a space in the main grandstand at the Camp Nou Stadium for anyone who wishes to express their condolences, while club President, Josep Bartomeu sent a message on the social media stating that Vilanova was "an eternal reference for FC Barcelona both in human and sporting terms. Thank you for all you have taught us. Rest in Peace."

Meanwhile messages of sympathy have begun to pour in from all areas of Spanish and world football with former Barcelona player, Lobo Carrasco saying "anger and pain. Tito never gave in and he has been taken from us. He was an example of someone who knew how to compete,"

Meanwhile former Real Madrid coach, Jose Mourinho, who is now at Chelsea and who famously stuck his finger in Vilanova's eye in the final of the 2011 Spanish Supercup, sent a message saying "it is a sad day, I send my deepest condolences."
