Rose Kosgei, a long-distance runner, is one of dozens of Kenyan and Ethiopian athletes still owed significant amounts of prize money by a British athletics manager, Ian Ladbrooke, who is under investigation by the sport's international federation, the IAAF. Ladbrooke, who arranges international marathons in India and Canada, is accused of failing to hand over up to USD600,000 in prizes and expense costs to runners including men's marathon World Record Holder Patrick Makau. Many, like Kosgei, who lives on a smallholder farm in Kenya's high-altitude training town, Iten, say that the money owed would make a huge difference to their lives.
