Rad­cliffe’s NO DOPE

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - SPORT -

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
