08 February 2010

UKA today confirmed that Kieren Kelly and Jamie Stevenson have been provisionally suspended from all competition after being charged by UK Anti-Doping with having committed an anti-doping rule violation.

The provisional suspension, which begins with immediate effect, follows the refusal of both athletes to undertake an out-of-competition test on 9th January 2010.

The athletes will now have the opportunity to respond to the charge against them, including the right to a full hearing of the case. UK Anti-Doping is tasked with overseeing all anti-doping programmes and the management of violations and disciplinary issues in the UK, fully supported by the rules of IAAF and UKA.

If found guilty the athletes will face a two year ban.
