UK athletics wants world records wiped out


LONDON: Britain’s athletics federation has called for all world records to be reset because of drugs and corruption scandals that have tainted the sport.

UK athletics also said in “A Manifesto for Clean Athletics” that serious drug cheats should face a lifetime ban. “The integrity of athletics was challenged as never before in 2015. Clean athletes and sports fans the world over have been let down.

Trust in the sport is at its lowest point for decades,” said UK Athletics chairman Ed Warner. “UKA believes the time has come for radical reform if we are to help restore trust in the sport,” said Warner.
