As the clock ticks down towards the Olympic and Paralympic winter Games in Beijing, GB Snowsport are proud to reaffirm our commitment to Clean Sport by backing UK Anti-Doping’s Clean Sport Week campaign.
With preparations for the 2021/22 season well underway and thoughts turning to representing the nation in Beijing next year, GB Snowsport technical and performance staff are working closely with athletes, support teams and coaches to ensure anti-doping protocols are understood and acted upon, and that education on the importance and benefits of competing clean is provided to all members of the GB Snowsport team.
In preparation for Clean Sport Week 2021, we have been working across the GB Snowsport community to ensure that our commitment to clean sport stands in close alignment with the new UK Anti-Doping Strategic Plan 2021-2025, which was launched earlier this month. We fully support the plan’s ‘Education First’ principles and its focus on providing appropriate education, which uses the right channels and is relevant and accessible to everybody involved in elite British snowsport.
We’re proud to put clean sport at the heart of our athlete support and dedicated to ensuring that anti-doping is a key pillar of our work supporting British athletes to excel on the world stage.
