From 28 to 30 June UK Anti-Doping (UKAD) is delivering the ‘Win Clean’ anti-doping education programme at the 2016 Henley Royal Regatta.
Win Clean has been developed for major event organisers hosting international events in the UK and is specifically aimed at international athletes; informing and educating them on their anti-doping responsibilities whilst they stay, and compete, in the UK.
Over 160 international rowing teams are competing at this year’s Henley Royal Regatta and UKAD is on hand, in the athlete area, to provide athletes, support personnel and spectators with information relating to anti-doping. The UKAD team will also provide support and advice, which athletes and coaches can access during their stay in the UK.
Win Clean has been successfully delivered at a wide range of events including the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games, the recent LEN Swimming Championships in London and a range of international hockey championships.
UKAD’s Director of Business Services, Philip Bunt said:
“We are delighted to be playing an important role at this year’s Henley Royal Regatta, which is one of the UK’s most prestigious and historic sporting events.
“UKAD believes that ensuring athletes, and athlete support personnel, are well informed and have the opportunity to make the right choices, is a fundamental part of protecting clean competition and preventing doping in sport.
“Education programmes, such as Win Clean, give major events organisers the opportunity to ensure their anti-doping programmes are making a difference – recognising the important role they play in preventing the problem.
“The Henley Royal Regatta provides us with another excellent opportunity to introduce the international sporting community to the robust and comprehensive anti-doping education programmes already in place in the UK.”
