Britain’s athletics federation today called for all world records to be reset because of drugs and corruption scandals that have tainted the sport.

UK athletics also said in “A Manifesto for Clean Athletics” that serious drug cheats should face a lifetime ban.

“The integrity of athletics was challenged as never before in 2015. Clean athletes and sports fans the world over have been let down. Trust in the sport is at its lowest point for decades,” said UK Athletics chairman Ed Warner.

The International Association of Athletics Federations has been hit by doping scandals, while Russia was suspended and corruption involving top officials taking money to cover up doping failures rocked the sport and its governing institution.

With Kenya also at the centre of doping allegations, a new report by the World Anti-Doping Agency on Thursday is expected to cause a new storm., according to a report by BBC Sports.
