Statement from the Chief Executive Officer, Phil Jones

Athletics Australia is aware of a number of articles published in The Sunday Times, and subsequently in other international media yesterday, alleging systematic doping in the sport of athletics internationally.

 

The contents of the articles is alarming. Athletics Australia is currently working to ascertain further information about the alleged leaked IAAF test reports that have been obtained to form the basis of the articles. The accusations made must be properly investigated. We welcome the World Anti-Doping Authority’s decision to probe the allegations made.

 

As a signatory to the World Anti-Doping Authority Code, Athletics Australia condemns doping in sport. We will continue to work tirelessly to ensure a clean level playing field for all athletes across the globe. We endorse and demand the highest possible level of testing protocols to ensure that all those who break the rules are caught and sanctioned.
