Why Clean Sport?

Everyone has a duty to protect clean sport.

We want to know when we watch sport that it’s the real deal - that there is integrity in sport.

Cheating in any form undermines the spirit of sport and the efforts of clean athletes.

The facts - what you need to know about clean sport

  • UK Anti-Doping is the UK’s National Anti-Doping Organisation responsible for protecting clean sport in the UK

  • Clean sport is protected globally by commitments from both governments and the sports movement

  • Anti-doping is governed by a worldwide agreed set of rules

  • Anti-doping is bigger than an athlete failing a test; if you are involved in sport, the chances are you will be bound by the Anti-Doping Rules.

What that means for you

If you are involved in sport, either as an athlete, athlete support personnel or sports administrator then you will have anti-doping responsibilities that you need to be aware of.

Failing to abide by the values of clean sport or the Anti-Doping Rules (if they apply to you) could mean severe consequences for your sporting future or career.

What you should do

  • Remember why you started participating in sport and what sport means to you

  • Live the values of clean sport at all times

  • Make sure you are fully aware of the Anti-Doping Rules and who they apply to

  • Keep yourself up to date with the latest news and alerts from UKAD so you are not at risk
