    PAULA RADCLIFFE wants all leading competitors to have “drugs passports” to help scientists to identify those people who are taking banned substances.

    The world marathon champion and record-holder wants competitors’ “steroid profile” to be held in a central database, so their physical record can be quickly researched when they are being tested.

    Radcliffe is supporting the idea of Professor David Cowan, Britain’s leading expert on drugs in sport, to have all competitors profiled in time for the 2012 London Olympic Games. Today, she will tell an IAAF symposium in Lausanne, Switzerland, of the desire of leading competitors to help the drugs authorities in their efforts to eradicate cheating.
