UKAD Head of International and Stakeholder Relations, Tony Josiah has been elected to the Institute of National Anti-Doping Organisations (iNADO) Board, to contribute to the strategic direction of the organisation and continue the international fight against doping in sport.

Tony has more than 20 years of experience in the field of anti-doping, working for UKAD since it was formed in 2009. During this time, he has held several interesting and varied positions, such as results manager, doping control station manager at the 2012 London Olympic and Paralympic Games, acting director of operations, 2015 Code implementation manager and head of major events and business development.

In his current role as Head of International and Stakeholder Relations, Tony developed UKAD’s International Strategy and leads on international work programmes and consultancy. He is one of seven new governance board members recently announced by iNADO.

Speaking on his appointment, Tony Josiah said: “I am very pleased to have been elected to the iNADO Board and thank the members for their support. It is a privilege to be part of an organisation that represents the important voice of National Anti-Doping Organisations, in the fight against doping in sport across all nationalities. I look forward to working alongside my fellow Board members to encourage collaboration and influence good governance across the anti-doping framework.”

Tony was appointed at the ninth edition of iNADOs Annual General Meeting (AGM), held virtually for the second time due to COVID-19, and his term will run for a period of three years until 2024.

iNADO CEO Jorge Levya said: “iNADO is delighted to welcome its seven Governing Board members, who will help steer iNADO and the national and regional anti-doping community in the years ahead, in this new era as we start to emerge from the global pandemic.”

“With the important WADA Governance Review, this is an exciting time to strengthen the anti-doping movement, to ensure it is more athlete-centred, independent and can uphold the trust of the sporting world. The iNADO team looks forward to working with the Board in the months and years ahead.”
