Clean sport advocates appointed to Team GB Athletes’ Commission

UKAD Athlete Commission members Callum Skinner and Liam Tancock have been appointed to the British Olympic Association's (BOA) Athletes' Commission.

The pair joined four other new recruits added to the 13-strong Commission, chaired by GB hockey player Ben Hawes, following an election by the athlete community. More than a third of eligible Olympians and potential Olympians voted in the election, in which 21 athletes stood for the six positions.

The new members of the BOA Athletes' Commission will all serve a four-year term from 2019-2022, encompassing the Tokyo 2020 and Beijing 2022 Olympic Games. The BOA Athletes’ Commission ensures that the athletes’ voice is at the heart of everything the BOA does.

Olympic cyclist Skinner joined the UKAD Athlete Commission on a three-year tenure on 1 January 2018. He has since represented clean British athletes across the globe, including at the inaugural World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) Global Athlete Forum, at which athletes called for stronger influence in anti-doping decision-making.

Retired Olympic swimmer Tancock was one of four appointments made to the UKAD Athlete Commission in July 2018, joining on an initial two-year term.

Congratulations to Callum and Liam from all at UK Anti-Doping.
