The commission provides a “guiding reference for all other sports organisations on matters relating to the protection of the health of athletes”.

Mr Pitsiladis said: “Being part of this commission allows important research to be applied from laboratory to the field at the very highest level, such as the Olympic Games.

“It also enables the participation of experts at all Olympic Games including the Youth Olympic Games to evaluate and implement changes to safeguard the health of the doping free athlete.”

He made the news earlier this year as one of a team of experts aiming to find a way of pushing the marathon record below two hours – without doping or prohibited aids.

Mr Pitsiladis says he is excited about the opportunity the commission will give him to “set and oversee the agenda for positive change in sport and exercise medicine”.
