• Clark resigns after barely seven months in charge
• England Netball’s Joanna Adams to rebuild organisation
UK Athletics was thrown into yet more turmoil on Thursday night when its chair, Chris Clark, resigned after barely seven months in charge on the day the troubled organisation also announced its new chief executive.
Joanna Adams, the highly regarded CEO of England Netball from 2015 to 2019, has been given the substantial task of rebuilding the battered reputation of UK Athletics. Her starting date is yet to be confirmed but she will join a sport that has lost two chairs, two chief executives and its performance director Neil Black in the last 17 months – and this week also became the subject of a major UK Sport review.
