Athletes from Russia and Kenya are in danger of missing the Summer Olympics because of performance enhancing drug use or the failure to prevent it. Russia's track and field team is currently banned from international competition. The sport's governing body meets next month to determine whether or not that suspension will remain in place.
In the meantime, the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) has found Kenya's anti-doping program to be in non-compliance, raising doubt on whether the country's athletes can run in Rio. Alex Capstick of the BBC joins us.
