WADA report confirms UKAD allows British Cycling to test own riders in 2011******
LONDON, Oct. 19 (Xinhua) -- United Kingdom Anti-Doping (UKAD) has allowed British Cycling to analyze samples from athletes in private, using a non-WADA accredited laboratory, a World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) report confirmed on Tuesday.
After allegations from media regarding the issue in 2011, WADA launched an investigation in March 2021. The investigation then confirmed that in February 2011, as part of a study into the potential contamination of supplements, British Cycling collected samples from elite riders and screened these samples for the androgen and anabolic steroid, nandrolone.
"Contrary to the rules laid down by the World Anti-Doping Code and the relevant International Standard, the samples were collected by British Cycling staff rather than doping control officers, analyzed by a non-WADA-accredited laboratory, and provided by the athletes on the basis that UKAD would never know the results," said the report.
The investigation also found out at least one UKAD employee was aware of the study and that the samples could be collected and analyzed at a non-WADA-accredited laboratory.
"To this day, UKAD has no record of ever receiving the analysis results and emails that would have showed UKAD's real-time knowledge of key events," revealed the report.
Following the publication of the report, a UKAD spokesperson said "the report makes no recommendations for UKAD to follow, and notes that all samples related to their investigation were negative".
"WADA's report focuses on matters from 2011 and on the involvement of one individual, who is no longer employed by UKAD. We acknowledge that these matters would not take place today," added the spokesperson.
British Cycling also released a statement regarding the WADA's report by saying that the member of British Cycling staff who coordinated the 2011 study with UK Anti-Doping had left the organisation several years ago.
"WADA's finding that this was supported by UKAD is in line with our own understanding of events and attaches no fault to British Cycling or to the riders involved in the study. British Cycling only conducted the testing having sought and received the express approval of UKAD's Director of Legal," it read. Endtiem
