Background information:

These adverse analytical findings are the result of further analysis of the samples collected last summer during the Olympic Games in Beijing. As part of its zero-tolerance policy against doping, the IOC is storing samples collected during the Olympic Games for eight years. This allows the IOC to analyse samples retroactively.
