UK athletics wants Ground Zero for world records

0

LONDON: Britain’s athletics federation on Monday (Tuesday in Manila) 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. The International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) has been hit by doping scandals and Russia has been suspended from international competition. Top officials have in turn taken bribes to cover up doping failures.
