UK Anti-doping says it will assist Salazar probe

WADA confirm they will investigate athletes who worked under disgraced former coach Alberto Salazar

Salazar was banned for four years last month for doping violations but no athletes were sanctioned, prompting the president of the International Olympic Committee to order checks on whether they had been properly investigated.

In a statement, Ukad chief executive Nicole Sapstead said: "We have been working with Usada on their investigation into the Nike Oregon Project and will work with Wada on their investigation if there is any evidence that relates to athletes or athlete support personnel under our jurisdiction".

'We need to look at that and we will'.

That scenario could now see the retesting of doping samples belonging to track stars including Farah, who was coached by Salazar at the Nike Oregon Project between 2011 and 2017.

Farah has never failed a drugs test and has always strenuously denied breaking any anti-doping regulations.

Russian Federation handed over data from its Moscow laboratory in January as a condition of its reintegration into the sporting fold after a three-year suspension for a state-sponsored doping programme.

Tygart, who has been critical of Wada's leadership, said: "That was the first thing to come out of Wada after the Usada decision".

Reedie said: "It was quite clear that data was going to be examined very closely and to be absolutely worthy and correct data".

Mohamed further called for the stretching of bans on doping athletes to cover their managers, agents and trainers to ensure every industry player takes their responsibilities seriously.
