'Reset records would punish innocent'

Paula Radcliffe has run the three fastest marathon times by a woman

Paula Radcliffe says UK Athletics’ proposals to reset world records would “punish innocent athletes”.

UKA made 14 suggestions, including longer bans for drug cheats, to usher in a “new era” of clean competition.

Radcliffe set the women’s marathon world record in London in 2003.

“I’ll never agree with the records being wiped because I know 100% that at least one of those records was achieved clean and that means more were too,” Briton Radcliffe told the Guardian.
