The samples for doping controls of the Winter Paralympic Games Vancouver 2010 completed!

Ahead of PyeongChang 2018, the International Paralympic Committee (IPC) has completed a re-analysis programme of athlete anti-doping urine samples from the Vancouver 2010 Paralympic Winter Games and found no adverse analytical findings. Out of the 440 blood and urine samples taken from Vancouver 2010, all 370 urine samples (84 per cent of all samples) were analysed ahead of the statute of limitations of the samples collected, expiring March 2018.

With the support of the Institut Armand-Frappier Research Centre in Quebec, Canada, the Vancouver 2010 samples were re-analysed using improved analytical methods, in order to possibly detect prohibited substances that could not be identified by the analysis performed at the time of the Games.
