Do you think doping occurs in UK Athletics?
Doping in sport is in the headlines again. Crystal Health polled 170 people and asked ‘Do you think doping still occurs in UK Athletics?’
The results of the poll were as follows:
The results indicate that the public are still not convinced that sport has not cleaned up its act. Only yesterday, Lord Coe, who is president of the IAAF, athletics’ world governing body, was under pressure again accused of misleading a parliamentary inquiry about the extent to which he was aware of Russian doping in athletics.
A report by the DCMS committee inquiry, published on 6th March , criticises Coe for what appears to be wilful ignorance on his part.
A UK Athletics spokeswoman said: “UK Athletics acknowledges the publication of the Select Committee report Combating Doping In Sport. We are pleased that the committee has noted the progress made in the record keeping since 2014 and also that it supports elements from our Clean Athletics Manifesto published in 2016. UK Athletics is 100% committed to Clean Athletics.”
BSc (Hons) Bio Medical Science Company Founder and Director
I started the company back in 2005 as a post graduate in Bio Medical Science from John Moores University in Liverpool. I started out with a laboratory in Liverpool and opened 23 DNA Clinics around the UK. My passion has always been to provide people with the best possible advice and support for the testing service they are looking at. I feel we achieve this by having a team of highly educated and dedicated individuals, who also believe in my values.
A lot has happened since 2005 and I have learned a lot as a woman in business. I am proud of what we have achieved, and it still gives me great satisfaction to give opportunities to graduates as they start their careers as young scientists.
I am very much a family person outside of the business. My passion is spending quality time with my family, reading and walking my 4 beautiful dogs!
