Our Susan Nash was part of the Clean Athletics Team at the recent European Athletics Indoor Championships which took place at the Emirates Arena, Glasgow March 1-3, 2019.
Working as a Chaperone as part of the Clean Athletics Team with UKAD is a privileged and confidential position. Chaperones ensure that Anti-Doping procedures are strictly followed including notifying and completing paperwork and accompanying and observing the selected athletes.
Volunteers are the mainstay of many major events, be that sporting or cultural. With over 600 athletes from 49 nations taking part, 400 volunteers called Hotshots were recruited to help support a wide range of roles and deliver a successful Championships. And a successful one it was too with Great Britain & NI finishing 2nd in the medal table with a total of 12 surpassing their target of 10.
With a variety of events taking place across the country, there pretty much is something for everyone to get involved with.
