IOC and WADA in the doping 'war'

The International Olympic Committee and the World Anti-Doping Agency have announced that selected samples from the Olympic Games London 2012 and Beijing 2008 are being reanalysed ahead of this summer’s Games in Rio de Janeiro, in another initiative aimed at protecting the clean athletes.

The reanalysis of hundreds of samples from London 2012 and Beijing 2008 is already under way. The IOC and WADA have together identified and agreed on the sports and countries being targeted. This includes in particular athletes likely to compete in Rio de Janeiro who also competed in London and Beijing 2008, and specific methods of analysis where there have been advances during the time since Beijing 2008 and London 2012.
