Australian sport to benefit from Boultbee appointment

2 March 2020

The Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority (ASADA) would like to congratulate John Boultbee on his appointment as the inaugural Chief Executive Officer of the National Sports Tribunal.

ASADA CEO David Sharpe says John is “highly respected in the national and international sporting community” and brings a wealth of experience to the tribunal.

“John’s intimate knowledge of the workings of sport and sports law will be critical in the tribunal’s success,” Sharpe says.

“Under his leadership the National Sports Tribunal will set a benchmark globally for sports integrity. It will provide an efficient, timely and cost-effective platform for athletes and sports.”

Sharpe encourages all sports, athletes and fans to get behind the tribunal, commissioned by the Australian Government in response to the Wood Review.

“All athletes and sports will benefit,” Sharpe says. “The independent tribunal is another mechanism that will help ensure Australian sport is clean and fair.”
