UK Anti-Doping head: ‘Athletes will be tested wherever they go’
UK Anti-Doping has started an investigation into claims by two Kenyan doctors that they supplied banned performance-enhancing drugs to British athletes. The medics were secretly filmed by the Sunday Times stating that they were paid by British, Kenyan and other athletes to administer blood-boosting drug EPO.
Nicole Sapstead, head of UK Anti-Doping spoke to 5 live Breakfast about the actions being taken to prevent performance enhancing drugs being used in sport: “Athletes have to provide us with ‘whereabouts’ so they can be located for testing any day of the year.”
“We work closely with our counterparts to identify where athletes might think they can go undetected. The message to athletes is that they can be, and will be tested wherever they go,” added Sapstead.
