"We are building an increasingly sophisticated, intelligence-based testing programme and we are one of the pioneers of what is to become the global approach to no advance notice, out of competition testing. Put simply, any cheating athlete who thinks they can compete or train in the UK without getting caught should think again."
"All 1,500 British Athletes to Be Drug Tested Before Leaving for Beijing," Guardian, July 11, 2008
