IOC To Analyse Beijing 2008 Samples

source: IOC

A report published on the IOC website on the 8 October 2008 revealed that the IOC intended to further analyse samples collected during the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games.

Tests will be conducted on samples across all sports including the newest doping agent EPO CERA. Samples collected at the Beijing Summer Olympic Games will be kept for up to eight years. When new technological breakthroughs arrive, samples will be re-tested to check for inappropriate use of performance-enhancing substances.

The message that IOC wants to send is to put out a "strong deterrent and make athletes think twice before cheating". IOC President Jacques Rogge was quoted to have said this.

Athletes qualified for the Beijing Olympic Games were tested by the World Anti-Doping Agency and BOCOG under the authority of the IOC. As a general rule, all top five finishers, plus a further two, were tested.
