UK Anti-Doping to increase testing by 50% backed by new government funds

UKAD have recently launched their 2018 – 2022 Strategic Plan with a vision to protect the right to enjoy doping-free sport. As part of its new strategic plan, UKAD will increase its publicly funded testing programme by 50%.

The increase in public-funded testing is one of a range of objectives outlined by UKAD, the organisation responsible for clean sport in the UK, and testing British athletes wherever they are.

Mandatory anti-doping requirements for the governing bodies of sport (NGBs) with an emphasis on grassroots to elite level athlete education, a greater and more prominent presence at sporting events, and developing the latest innovations in intelligence gathering, are also included in the strategy.
