British Cycling review panel names three

by CyclingTips

Three people have been named to the review panel leading the investigation into the allegations against the former head British Cycling Shane Sutton, with a fourth yet to be announced. Annamarie Phelps, the current head of British Rowing, will chair the panel.


“One final panel member is still to be confirmed and there is also the option to bring in additional expertise once all the submissions have been reviewed,” a statement said.

On the panel are former England rugby national team head coach Stuart Lancaster, sports lawyer John Mehrzad, an independent chairman of the Football Association’s anti-discrimination panel and London 2012 hockey bronze medalist Annie Panter.

“This expert panel has the range of skills and experience to enable us to conduct a thorough and robust review,” Phelps told the Guardian. “The panel will work swiftly and diligently to assess the evidence and compile a report in the interest of the sport.

“I would encourage anyone still considering making a submission to do so, in complete confidence, to Sport Resolutions UK.”
