LONDON---Paula Radcliffe, a three-
time London Marathon winner and
holder of the world record for the dis-
tance, denied yesterday that she ever
used performance-enhancing drugs
and said she was "devastated" that
her name had been linked to allega-
tions of widespread blood doping in
track and field.
"I categorically deny that I ever
resorted to cheating in any form what-
soever at any time in my career," the
British runner said in a strongly-worded
four-page statement issued through
her management company.
The 41-year-old Radcliffe, who
retired from competition this year,
released her denial following a British
Parliamentary hearing into allegations
of doping leveled last month by The
Sunday Times newspaper and German
Even though her name was not men-
tioned in the media reports or the hear-
ing, Radcliffe said she was "effectively"
implicated in the Parliamentary inquiry.
Jesse Norman, chairman of the Cul-
ture, Media and Sport Select Commit-
tee, said during the hearing that "poten-
tially the winners or medalists at the
London Marathon" and "potentially
British athletes are under suspicion for
very high levels of blood doping."
Radcliffe, who won the London
Marathon in 2002, 2003 and 2005, said
she was "devastated that my name has
even been linked to these wide-ranging
"These accusations threaten to
undermine all I have stood and com-
peted for, as well as my hard earned
reputation," she said. "By linking me
to allegations of cheating, damage done
to my name and reputation can never
be fully repaired, no matter how untrue
I know them to be."
Radcliffe acknowledged that her
blood-testing data may have shown
"fluctuations" but insisted there were
no "abnormalities" and experts had
concluded she had done nothing wrong.
"I welcome further investigation if
it is necessary," she said. "However,
multiple experts (have) already con-
cluded...that there is simply no case to
The Sunday Times and ARD reported
that blood doping was rampant in the
sport, citing leaked results from an
IAAF database. The IAAF has strongly
rejected suggestions that it had failed
to follow up on the suspicious tests
and that it wasn t doing enough to
The media reports examined the
results of 12,000 blood tests involving
5,000 athletes from 2001 to 2012, and
concluded that 800 were suspicious.
The reports said that 146 medals---
including 55 golds---in disciplines rang-
ing from the 800 metres to the
marathon at the Olympics and world
championships were won by athletes
who have recorded suspicious tests.
The Sunday Times also claimed the
London Marathon was won seven times
over a 12-year period by athletes who
recorded suspicious blood tests.
