Intrigued As Sarah Rowell Salazar’s Inquiry Was Released To UK Anti-Doping A Day After Resignation

The UK Athletics internal inquiry into Mo Farah’s relationship with Alberto Salazar which was led by Sarah Rowell was today released to UK Anti- Doping Agency which have repeatedly request of it.

Only yesterday it was announced that Sarah Rowell, who led the the said internal investigation, is to step down from the UK Athletics board a year earlier than planned

UK Athletics has now fully handed over to the UK Anti-Doping Agency its full internal 2015 review into Mo Farah’s relationship with Alberto Salazar.

The report, which is said to include detailed accounts of Farah’s training and medical data, came after repeated requests from Ukad to see it as well as an extraordinary rebuke from Ukad’s chief executive, Nicole Sapstead, to UK Athletics last month.

Previously, Ukad had seen only an edited Powerpoint executive summary of the 2015 report, which was led by three former athletes and concluded there were “no concerns” about Farah continuing with Salazar, despite a BBC Panorama programme raising questions about the American coach.

A UK Athletics spokesperson confirmed the news and said the organisation “remains fully committed to protecting the integrity of the sport and the pursuit of clean athletics”, adding: “We will continue to assist Ukad with any further queries.”

In March, Ukad criticised UK Athletics for failing to comply with repeated requests to hand over its report into the way it handled its relationship with disgraced running coach Salazar.
