UK Anti-Doping (UKAD) will host its fifth Clean Sport Forum on Tuesday 3 November.
Over 75 attendees from National Governing Bodies of sport (NGBs), sporting bodies and universities will listen, and contribute, to a range of presentations and roundtable sessions that focus on how sports can effectively manage their clean sport risks.
The day will be introduced by UKAD Chair, David Kenworthy, and will include presentations from:
• RFU’s Professional Rugby Director Rob Andrew
• Lead Performance Nutritionist at the English Institute of Sport, Mike Naylor
• British Olympic Association Deputy Chef of Performance Services, James Moore
• British Paralympic Association Athlete Services Manager, Kate Eddy
The Forum will also give delegates the opportunity to contribute to roundtable sessions focused on the challenges of developing and implementing sport-specific clean sport education programmes and share best practice around how these challenges can be overcome.
UKAD Interim Head of Education and Athlete Support James Fuller said:
“We are looking forward to hosting our fifth Clean Sport Forum which will provide those involved in sport with important information on how to manage the risk of doping in their sports, as well as the opportunity to network and share ideas with colleagues.
“Sports and support staff play a huge role in an athlete’s development and have huge influence on an athlete’s career. To protect clean sport in this country, the sports themselves must continue to invest and develop their clean sport education programmes to ensure that we give athletes the best opportunity to compete, and win, clean.”
