BOA Reaction to WADA Foundation Board's Finding

20 November 2011 / 20:00


The British Olympic Association (BOA) welcomes today’s outcome from the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) which will bring clarity and closure to the dispute with WADA.

We look forward to receiving the formal findings from WADA setting out how they have determined the BOA’s Selection Policy is non-compliant with the World Anti-Doping Code.

On behalf of the overwhelming majority of British athletes we will vigorously defend any challenge to the selection policy which bans drug cheats from representing Team GB and we will publish the process we intend to follow in the near future.
