UK Athletics ‘not in a good position’

UK Athletics (UKA) “needs to transform the way it approaches difficult ethical decisions”, according to an independent review.

UK Athletics (UKA) “needs to transform the way it approaches difficult ethical decisions”, according to an independent review.

The study said many of those interviewed identified “a general culture of mistrust” and “experienced poor behaviours” at the governing body.

Commissioned by funding agency UK Sport in February after a series of controversies and resignations at UKA, the review also orders the body to reform its board by the end of the year.

“The scars inflicted as a result of the period of difficulty within athletics are clear to see,” it concludes.

“The impression formed during the review was that athletics in the UK is not in a good position.”

UKA said it welcomed the review and accepted “a need for change”.­
