Radcliffe’s NO DOPE
PAULA RADCLIFFE is delighted to be cleared of doping allegations by the IAAF, but the endurance running great believes her reputation has been left unfairly damaged during her fight for vindication.
The IAAF concluded yesterday, amid a rebuttal of claims it had not acted on evidence of drugs cheating, that Britain’s world marathon recordholder “had been publicly accused of blood doping based on the gross misinterpretation of raw and incomplete data”.
Talking to Sky Sports, the 41-yearold said she hoped that no athlete ever had to endure what she had gone through.
“I knew I’d done nothing wrong. I told journalists that at the time,” Radcliffe, a long-standing anti-doping campaigner, said. – Reuters
