The Board of UK Athletics acknowledges the announcement made by USADA concerning the 4 year sanction imposed on Alberto Salazar.

The Board and Performance Oversight Committee (POC) will now review the arbitration decision in full prior to making any further comment.

It should be noted that at all times UK Athletics fully cooperated with both USADA and UKAD throughout the investigations. Furthermore the Performance Oversight Committee's own investigation in 2015 was restricted to the interaction of the Nike Oregon Project with Mo Farah. and not an anti-doping investigation. Such investigations can and should only be undertaken by the relevant anti-doping authorities.

UK Athletics is 100% committed to Clean Athletics through investment in athlete education, supporting comprehensive testing programmes, and full cooperation with both UK and International Anti-Doping Authorities.
