Doping is unacceptable in any level of sport. It is important that all involved in sport play their part in educating participants about the dangers of doping, both in terms of the damage it does to sport's integrity but also the health risks to individuals as well. There is still more that sports governing bodies can do on this front, working alongside UK Anti-Doping, to help promote clean and fair sport at all levels.
