Over 80 attendees from the sporting landscape will gather at Loughborough University on Thursday 29 November for the 2012 Clean Sport Forum.

Representatives from the National Governing Bodies of Sport, sporting bodies and universities will be invited to share ideas and learning, building on the successes of London 2012. UK Anti-Doping will host the one day forum, with Loughborough University Vice Chancellor Robert Alison introducing the day.

Heptathlete Kelly Sotherton and Paralympic swimmer Graham Edmunds will join British Olympic Association Head of Communications Miriam Wilkens and UK Anti-Doping Chief Executive Andy Parkinson to discuss perspectives on clean sport. Delegates will also be invited to share views via roundtable discussions, with topics including education, collaborative working and athlete support.

UK Anti-Doping Education Manager Amanda Batt said: “We are very much looking forward to hosting the 2012 Clean Sport Forum which will provide those involved in sport with an opportunity to build on the success of London 2012.

“This is an opportunity to come together and share outlooks, including athletes’ viewpoints. This forum is an important part of UK Anti-Doping’s work as we help sports to facilitate their anti-doping programmes.”
