NAIROBI, Kenya -- Prosecutors in Kenya withdrew doping charges against banned marathon runner Rita Jeptoos former manager on Tuesday, saying they wanted to conduct more investigations.Federico Rosa, an Italian national, had been facing charges that he provided or administered banned substances to Jeptoo and another little-known Kenyan runner, with some of the allegations dating back as far as 2004.Rosa said he had been given back his passport by a court in Nairobi and was free to go. He had been out on bail ahead of Tuesdays court hearing.There is no witnesses. There is nothing against me. There is no case. This is one of the best days of my life, Rosa told The Associated Press in a phone interview.Rosa was freed, but prosecutors said they would investigate further and he could be re-arrested and re-charged.Prosecutors had said that Rosa was complicit in Jeptoos doping in 2014, when he was her manager. Jeptoo, once the leading womens marathon runner in the world, tested positive for EPO in an out-of-competition test that year. She was initially banned for two years, but her punishment was doubled to four years by the Court of Arbitration for Sport last month. That CAS ruling also appeared to vindicate Rosa, with the Swiss-based court noting in its findings that Jeptoo had hidden her doping from her management and coaching team at the time.Rosa ended his association with Jeptoo after she failed the doping test.Although Jeptoo was named as a complainant by prosecutors in the Kenyan criminal case, Rosa disputed that his client had ever accused him of involvement in her doping.Charges that Rosa helped administer banned substances to Elijah Kiprono Boit, a former 800-meter runner who competed at the world youth championships in 2001 and 2004, were also dropped. Rosa was accused of helping Boit dope between 2004-08.Rosa represents a number of top Kenyan athletes, including three-time world 1,500-meter champion Asbel Kiprop and Olympic marathon champion Jemima Sumgong. Kiprop attended Tuesdays court hearing in support of Rosa. Mark Grace Jersey .

VAL GARDENA, Italy -- Max Franz stunned the field to win a World Cup downhill Saturday, ending Austrias 13-race drought in skiings signature event with his first career victory.Starting with the No. 26 bib after all of the favorites had already come down the Saslong course, Franz finished a slim 0.04 seconds ahead of Norwegian standout Aksel Lund Svindal and 0.41 in front of Val Gardena specialist Steven Nyman.The previous Austrian man to win a downhill was Hannes Reichelt in Kvitfjell, Norway, in March last year.Austria, once known as the sports Wunderteam for producing downhillers like Franz Klammer, Stephan Eberharter, Hermann Maier and Michael Walchhofer, didnt win a single downhill all of last season.Its a big relief, Franz said. We knew that all we needed was a little something and then the pressure would let up and now we can all ski without this external pressure.Matthias Mayer of Austria won the downhill at the 2014 Sochi Olympics but he had his season cut short last year with a horrific crash in Val Gardena, breaking two vertebrae. Having returned to action earlier this season, Mayer finished 17th Saturday.Franz also had injury problems last season, missing several races due to knee and ankle problems.Of course its an individual sport but this is going to help the entire team, Franz said in German through a translator.The 27-year-old Franzs previous best results were two runner-ups and one third-place.Svindal was already being interviewed as the presumed winner when Franz came down and made up a deficit in the final interval.Upon seeing his result, Franz whipped his poles around wildly while Svindal took his hat off and Nyman applauded.Svindal swept both the super-G and downhill in Val Gardena last season and was looking for his first victory since missing much of last season following a crash and kknee injury in Kitzbuehel.ddddddddddddNyman, meanwhile, needed one more win to match Klammer and Italian standout Kristian Ghedina for a record fourth downhill win in Val Gardena.The highlights of the Saslong are the camel bumps, which launch skiers into the air for nearly 80 meters (90 yards), and the twisty and technical ciaslat section -- two areas that come right after another midway down. There are also numerous little bumps and jumps, providing constant air time.Svindal made a major error midway through his run, landing a jump far outside the race line, prompting him to brake to clear the next gate.You dont win races with mistakes, Svindal said. The other guys are too fast. ... I knew it wasnt really perfect.Nyman also struggled, sitting down on his skis while landing the bigger camel jump. Still, the American was able to regain his speed.I was just telling myself, `You got to keep pushing. The first thing in my mind was that the knees didnt pop so things are OK. Lets keep going, keep charging. Lets go, lets go, lets go, Nyman saidAll three of Nymans wins have come in Val Gardena.I cant not be happy about a podium, Nyman said. Im really happy to perform the way I did with a mistake.Adrien Theaux of France finished fourth and 2013 winner Erik Guay of Canada was fifth.In a strong day for the U.S. Ski Team, Travis Ganong came seventh and Bryce Bennett was eighth.Kjetil Jansrud, the Norwegian who had won the opening three speed races of the season -- including Fridays super-G on the Saslong, was only 12th.The men travel over the Gardena pass into Alta Badia for a giant slalom and a parallel slalom Sunday and Monday, respectively.---Andrew Dampf on Twitter: www.twitter.com/asdampf ' ' '
