Following an incident at the BMC GP Watford on 29 June, a UKA disciplinary investigation has fully reviewed the matters and considered witness accounts of the event including the parties directly involved.
As a WCP funded athlete, Mr Langford is bound by the terms of the WCP agreement which sets the standards in relation to conduct. The actions – which the athlete has readily admitted – fell well below the standard expected. The investigation took into account the immediate apologies issued to the official concerned thereafter.
The following sanctions will apply:
- A formal (and final warning) reprimand will be entered upon his record
- A disciplinary sanction entry on the UKA website
It has also been determined that the following sanctions should also apply to the athlete.
- £1000 fine, to be donated to charity
- One day of athletics community service – to be served assisting officials at an athletics event with junior athletes
No further comments will be made in relation to this case.
