Mo Farah distanced from Jama Aden after controversial coach is arrested in doping raid

British Athletics has insisted Mo Farah is no longer associated with a controversial athletics coach who was present at the double Olympic champion’s training sessions last year and was arrested by Spanish police on Monday morning after performance-enhancing drugs were found in a colleague’s room in his hotel during a dawn raid.

Jama Aden was described as an “unofficial facilitator” after it emerged that he was present at some of fellow Somali-born Farah’s sessions in Ethiopia last year.

Farah was then pictured with Aden this February as the double Olympic champion worked alongside some of Aden’s athletes at another training camp in Ethiopia.

Aden was led into a waiting police car early this morning when Spanish officers raided a hotel in Sabadell, Catalonia, where the coach and a group of his athletes were staying.

Telegraph Sport has learned that erythropoietin (EPO) was found in the room of one of Aden’s physiotherapists, who was also arrested. Organising or promoting doping is a criminal offence in Spain, where culprits are liable to face up to two years in prison.

Twenty-five of Aden’s athletes are currently undergoing drug testing conducted by Spanish anti-doping officials in collaboration with the International Association of Athletics Federation.

British Athletics say Farah has always been accompanied by one of its own coaches when in Aden’s presence over the past year and insists his relationship with the coach was never official.

“There was a short period last year where neither Neil Black or Barry Fudge [British Athletics coaches] were there, of about a week,” said a British Athletics spokesman of his time with Aden.

“All Aden did was hold a stop watch and shout out times. He wasn’t coaching. It was something that anyone could do and it wasn’t anything technical.”

Aden, who was based in Sheffield for a number of years with his British-born wife, left Somalia as a teenager and has built up a reputation as one of the most well-respected coaches in global athletics.

As well as coaching Ethiopia’s Genzebe Dibaba, who broke the 1,500m world record last year, Aden has also been present at training sessions for Britain’s Mukhtar Mohammed for a number of years.

Mohammed is coached by his own brother but was working alongside Aden’s group when he won bronze at the 2013 European Indoor Championships.
Aden has had previous associations with athletes caught up in doping scandals when two of them, Qatar’s Hamza Driouch and Laila Traby of France, were banned for drugs violations in recent years. Driouch once claimed Aden had helped him dope, before later retracting his statement.

There is no suggestion that Farah, Dibaba or Mukhtar have been involved in any anti-doping offences.

Farah’s agent was last year forced to deny that the athlete had trained with Driouch after the Briton published a photo on social media appearing to show him running with the banned drugs cheat.

Ricky Simms, Farah’s agent, told Telegraph Sport that Farah was not part of a training group with any other athletes who may have been on the track at the same time, despite the presence of Driouch trailing him closely.

“Mo was in Ethiopia by himself,” said Simms. “He hired some local athletes to pace for him during his workouts and he wasn’t part of any other training group. It’s not unusual for people to jump in.”

Farah was not available to comment on Aden’s arrest. Source:telegraph

Waxaa Qoray

Voters in the self-proclaimed republic of Somaliland are heading to the polls on May, 31 to choose their member of parliament for the first time since 2005.

Somaliland broke off from mainland Somalia after the regime of Siad Barre in 1991.

The 5.2 Million citizens of Somaliland will be making yet another stab at global recognition as some 1.3 million voters head to the polls to choose 82 members of parliament and 247 local councils.

An election whose measure of democracy Somaliland hopes to use in its quest to certify its sovereignty.

Somaliland’s three political parties in the polls are opposition politicians Faisal Warabe’s UCID, Wadani led by another opposition leader Abdirahman Erye and President Muse Bihi Kulmiye party.

The elections is observed by over a hundred international observers including Uganda’s former opposition leader, Kizza Besigye and ex-president of Sierra Leone, Ernest Bai Korma.

”Our visit to the headquarters of the Somaliland National Electoral Commission left us with a good impression about the Commission’s preparedness to conduct peaceful and credible elections,” said in a Twitter post.

The elections are taking place in six regions of Somaliland, namely Awdal, Sahil, Marodi-Jeeh, Toghdeer, Sanaag and Sool.

The regional state leaders of Southwest, HirShabelle, and Galmudug allied with incumbent President Mohamed Abdullahi Farmaajo have opposed to any form of extension on Tuesday evening.

In a joint statement Galmudug and HirShabelle called for dialogue based on 17 September pact.

“We agreed that the country should hold elections as soon as possible and that any form of extension should be abolished,” read part of the joint statement by HirShabelle and Galmudug.

Southwest leader Abdiaziz laftagaren also opposed the term extension of the President just an hour after Galmudug and HirShabelle released a joint statement.

The move by the three regional states allied to President was welcomed by Somali Prime Minister Mohamed Hussein Roble who also instructed the military commanders to pull back forces to their locations and barracks.

“I would like to welcome the press statements made by Galmudug and HirShabelle federal states, ” PM Roboe said in a statement.

“I call on the FMS states of Puntland and Jubaland and Benadir region to fully commit to a peaceful process in our efforts to hold free and inclusive election, ” he added.

United Nations, United Kingdom, United States and opposition leaders including former President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud commended the move by the regional states.

“The UN in Somalia noting statements by Qoorqqor, Ali Gudlawe, PM Roble and others recalls int’l partners position: consensus is vital for any electoral process; only 17 September model can be endorsed by FGS and all FMS; all parties must reject violence and resume dialogue, ” the United Nations said.

The development comes as families in some parts of Mogadishu fleed from their residences and moved to other district followings clashes.

Somali Gov’t Warns Al-Shabaab & ISIS Will Capitalize On SNA Faction Clashes.

Somali National Security Minister Hassan Hundubey has warned opposition groups to be wary of “unknown elements” including Al-Shabaab and Daesh who might seek to use the current crisis to inflict harm to the public.

Speaking to the media on Tuesday said that the government may take action to confront people with the “behaviour of militias” who are taking advantage of the situation.

“The government has enough troops to take control of the city. It is Ramadan, but more actions need to be taken to prevent it.” mr. Hundebey said.

”The reason the prime minister called for dialogue is that the government does not want the fighting to affect the residence,” he added.

The remarks by the interior minister come hours after the international partners strongly condemned the outbreak of violence in the capital.

“We are alarmed especially by the emerging fragmentation of the Somali National Army along clan lines, which detracts from its primary task of combating Al Shabab and protecting the Somali population. Use of security forces for the pursuit of political objectives is unacceptable” the statement read in part.

As tensions increase in Mogadishu following Sunday clashes between government soldiers and those who were against President Farmaajo’s two years term extension.
