UKAD Statement on Latest Release of Athlete Information

UK Anti-Doping Chief Executive, Nicole Sapstead said “We absolutely condemn the latest release of personal information pertaining to members of Team GB. It is causing unnecessary and unwarranted worry for the athletes affected.

“We continue to treat this matter with the utmost concern and seriousness, and we are in close contact with WADA. We have also been in contact with the four most recently affected athletes this evening and have offered our support.

"We spent yesterday contacting Team GB athletes about the possibility of their TUE data being released and we will continue to keep our athletes and stakeholders apprised as more information becomes available.

“It is incomprehensible that someone would use athletes’ personal information to try to undermine the global anti-doping system. These athletes have obtained TUEs through a robust and independent system. The use of TUEs is not a doping offence, and all of these athletes have legitimately applied for, and been granted, medical support within the anti-doping rules.”
