Facilities Notes: Leyton Orient Continues Olympic Stadium Groundshare Bid
League One Leyton Orient Chair Barry Hearn is "continuing his attempts to secure a groundshare" with EPL side West Ham at London's Olympic Stadium. Leyton's written request for a judicial review of the decision to grant the Hammers sole tenancy of the stadium "was turned down last month." However, Hearn will now attempt to state his case at an oral hearing and is "confident" of a successful outcome (PA, 5/14). ... Athletics Kenya said on Tuesday that "it set up an anti-doping centre" in the northwestern town of Eldoret, the epicentre of distance running in the east African nation. Athletics Kenya President Isaiah Kiplagat said, "Kenya's credibility is being doubted in the athletics world and that is a matter we take very seriously. We must end it" (REUTERS, 5/14).
