Australia’s top anti-doping official is set to retire.
Aurora Andruska, Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority (ASADA) chief executive, will leave her position at the conclusion of her four-year term in May.
Ms Andruska has overseen ASADA’s investigation into AFL and NRL doping allegations arising from the “darkest day in Australian sport” in February 2013.
She joined the organisation in May 2010.
Federal Sports Minister Peter Dutton paid tribute to Ms Andruska on Tuesday ahead of her departure.
“Ms Andruska has had a long and distinguished career in the public service,” Dutton said in a statement.
“I would like to thank her for her dedication and service over 37 years and wish her well for future endeavours.”
Mr Dutton has commissioned his Department secretary to lead a selection process to replace Ms Andruska.
