Yvonne Mooney Letters

8th August 2016

I have written to the Chair of the British Olympic Association, Seb Coe, and the President of the International Olympic Committee. regarding Motherwell local, Yvonne Mooney’s upgrading of her Olympic medal from bronze to silver after it was found that the gold medal winner was found guilty of doping five years later.

I have asked that the IOC considers taking the necessary steps to strip all historical medals and titles of athletes found guilty of doping at any point in their career and that Seb Coe makes representations to the IOC to this affect. I believe this is essential for securing justice, deterring future acts of doping and preserving the integrity of sporting disciplines.

Olympian Yvonne Murray still battling for medal recognition… 28 years after being pushed into bronze place by a drugs cheat.
