With this tweet, "One small step to promote transparency, accountability and dialogue. The publication of my drug test history," Chrissie Wellington exposed the naked truth today by publishing a complete history of her drug testing including:
- date of test
- type of the test (blood/urine/blood passport)
- testing authority
On her blog Chrissie Welington writes, "This is a small step that i feel will help to uphold triathlon’s integrity and reputation, ensure that the competition is fair, and provide proof that athletes can achieve great things without the need to cheat."
"I have been vocal in my repeated calls for a stronger, more rigorous, coordinated and consistent anti doping programme within triathlon. Hence i welcome the recent steps that have been taken to address this issue by the sport’s various governing bodies and the increased media coverage that has been dedicated to this important issue.
Improved testing, coupled with openness, transparency and continued dialogue, regarding the policy and process, is crucial. In this regard i have decided to publish the full list of anti-doping tests that have been conducted on me since I became a professional in 2007. The information will be published on my website."
