UKAD released its 2017 statement amid the Faro situation


The UK Anti-Doping Agency (UKAD) issued a statement of 2017 against the backdrop of media reports about the organization’s refusal to issue doping tests to four-time Olympic champion Mo Farah.

“All leading elite athletes who are part of the UKAD testing and / or retesting program will be under the jurisdiction of the UKAD, even if they train or compete abroad. Their samples will be tested and possibly re-analyzed by UKAD based on the data and new methods for detecting doping, ”the release said on the UKAD official website.

The report also indicated that when re-examining a sample, the amount of substance in it may decrease, which is why decisions to recheck the samples need to be considered, and the national anti-doping organization may calmly disagree with it.

In addition, UKAD emphasizes that it does not comment on its testing strategy and adheres to the principle of confidentiality, without disclosing information during the investigation, as well as at the end of the investigation, if no charges are brought.

Prior to this, information appeared that UKAD refused to provide WADA with samples of the runner Farah and will fight any attempts to get samples of the athlete in the investigation of his former coach Alberto Salazar.

Earlier, Hayo Zeppelt criticized UKAD for refusing to hand over Fara's doping tests.
