Britain’s two-time Paralympian has won team and individual medals at world championships.

Great Britain's Pippa Britton has been appointed as a member of the International Paralympic Committee’s anti-doping committee following a meeting of the organisation’s governing board in Madrid, Spain in mid-September.

Pippa will serve on the committee until a governance review has addressed the organisation’s committee structure.

“I am delighted to have been appointed to the IPC Anti-Doping Committee. I hope to use my experience of competing internationally, alongside my governance experience, to add to the other skills of the committee members,” said Pippa.

“I have strong personal values about fair play and clean sport and am really looking forward to working with the IPC and the committee to ensure that we have a level playing field for all athletes.”

Britton has served as an athlete representative and member of the para archery committee within World Archery’s governance since the Turin 2011 World Archery Para Championships.

The IPC’s anti-doping committee was established in 2004 to advise the IPC on issues related to the fight against doping throughout the Paralympic Movement, assisting with policies, guidelines and procedures, including results management and compliance with internationally accepted regulations, including the World Anti-Doping Code.

In July, former CEO of the Swiss National Anti-Doping Organisation Dr Matthias Kamber was appointed committee chair.
