No wrongdoing by Mo Farah - UKA

Mo Farah has been caught up in the doping allegations surrounding his coach

UK Athletics has found no evidence of wrongdoing by Mo Farah in the initial findings of its investigation into allegations of doping against his coach Alberto Salazar.

The governing body also said its investigation had not given it "any reason to question the appropriateness of the input" given by the Nike Oregon Project to the double Olympic champion's training regime.

UKA launched a review following allegations broadcast in a BBC Panorama programme in June that Salazar, the head coach at the Nike Oregon Project in Portland, where Farah trains, had violated several anti-doping rules.

Salazar, who is an 'unpaid consultant' for UKA, has strenuously denied all the accusations against him and Farah who, whilst not accused of any wrongdoing in the BBC documentary, has vowed to stick by his coach unless any allegations are proven.

UKA launched a review into the American's relationship with the governing body and Farah, which was undertaken by its three-person Performance Oversight Group, comprising former athletes Jason Gardener, Dr Sarah Rowell and Anne Wafula-Strike.

A statement from UKA said: "With reference to the first and most vital objective of the review, the Board can confirm that none of the extensive information supplied to the POG contained any evidence of impropriety on the part of Mo Farah, nor gave UK Athletics any reason to question the appropriateness of the input given by the Oregon Project to Mo Farah's training regime."
