Mike, I think you have "clarified the lack of clarity" by UKA in providing understanding on who is to be tested when, where and who by. UKA have assumed that all athletes that compete, down to mini league are drug aware. If there is a level of skill in between mini league and podium that t...

Would you use a facility if you thought there is a risk of contimination and a positive test. Once you are declared positive, no matter what Javlin Sam says and no matter what you have written on the paper as mitigating circumstances YOU ARE A DRUGS CHEAT History has proved there is no recovery from...

I was wrong in making the statement about the boys having been banned - Appologies to the pair - given some bum info. Athletics is well down the list of major offenders when it comes to drug testing related issues in the UK - probably still behind darts and snooker. In 2008 there were over 160 offen...

Loughborough is a public building and on the day in question of the Target test I am told it was full of people including press.

Has UKA and Its drug testing enforcing agency met the requirement of the international drug testing standards (WADA International Code) for procedure and data protection by conducting a test in a public toilet?? When working in LOD (limits of detection) in the nanogram / ml range - that is 0.000,000...
