Kenyan police have charged former Olympic gold medallist Ezekiel Kemboi for his alleged involvement in the stabbing of a woman he had driven home.
Kemboi won gold at the 2004 Athens Olympics in the steeplechase and is scheduled to compete at the London Games next month.
Kemboi denied the accusation during an appearance before a magistrate in the western Kenyan town of Eldoret and was subsequently released on bail.
The wounded woman said that Kemboi stabbed her after she rebuffed his sexual advances at the conclusion of a night out at a bar.
A hearing in the case has been set for September the 25th.
