Information concerning the re-analysis programme of the samples collected on the occasion of the 2006 Olympic Games in Turin
An extensive re-analysis programme has been conducted in connection with the samples collected in Turin.
Out of a total of 1,219 samples collected, 489 samples were re-analysed by the WADA accredited laboratory in Lausanne, which had been storing the samples since their collection in 2006 and their initial analysis by the laboratory installed in Orbassano during the Olympic Games. The re-analysis programme included the application of new and improved methods of detection since 2006. The IOC cannot and will not issue further comments with regard to this process, nor will it answer questions, at this point in time. Further communications will be issued in due course.
