Roe to uphold athletic integrity

Written By miftah nugraha on Jumat, 08 Maret 2013 | 19.55

TASMANIAN sports administrator Brian Roe will head Athletics Australia's new Ethics and Integrity Unit.

The unit will deal with the fallout from the Australian Crime Commission's Organised Crime and Drugs in Sport report, which was released last month.

Roe, the outgoing president of Athletics Tasmania, is also an International Association of Athletics Federation official and an AFL Tasmania board member.

He will manage the new unit, which will include a pool of independent investigators who will be appointed on a case-by-case basis to ensure members of the sport correctly adhere to Athletics Australia's member protection, illicit drugs, match-fixing and anti-doping policies.

The unit will also look into any matters which might threaten the overall integrity of the sport.

Athletics Australia chief executive Dallas O'Brien said Roe was the clearly the right candidate for the role.

"Given Brian Roe was intimately involved in drafting those policies, and his long experience in both our sport and as a senior administrator and IAAF official, there simply is no one better qualified for this role," O'Brien said.

"Brian will work in conjunction with myself as CEO and report to the Athletics Australia Board through vice-president David Grace, QC, whose legal specialty includes sports law.

"David has been an arbitrator on the Court of Arbitration for Sport since 2000 and between he and Brian, we're confident that the Ethics and Integrity Unit will be in the right hands to safeguard our sport."

Roe will stand down as president of Athletics Tasmania in June after 10 years in the role.
