 Nicole Sapstead, Chief Executive UK Anti-Doping said:

“UK Anti-Doping (UKAD) welcomes the report published by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) Independent Commission and awaits the actions which must inevitably follow from such a damning report.

“The Independent Commission’s findings highlight that the international playing field has not been level for our clean British athletes competing on the global stage. Today’s findings will go some way to levelling that playing field for our athletes, and the whistle-blowers and media should be applauded for bringing these issues to WADA’s attention.

“UKAD relies on information from a wide range of sources in order to deter and detect doping in sport. No matter how big or small, if anyone has information which they feel is important they can report it to us in confidence, so we can continue to protect the rights of clean athletes, and everyone’s right to clean sport.”
