WADA recommends IOC use old doping sample bottles in S. Korea
    2018-February-2  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

THE World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) has recommended to the International Olympic Committee (IOC) that it use 2016 doping sample bottles for the upcoming Winter Olympics after the agency’s inquiry into the 2017 version showed the bottles could be re-opened after a sample was produced.

On Tuesday, the IOC said it was “very concerned” about claims the new sample bottles, provided by Swiss manufacturer Berlinger, could be opened, and the Swedish anti-doping agency said it would stop using them.

WADA said in a statement Wednesday it had confirmed that a proportion of the new generation of BEREG-KIT Geneva security bottles were “susceptible to manual opening without evidence of tampering, whether they have been frozen or not.” Those security bottles were introduced in September 2017.

After determining that some of the newer bottles could be “manually opened after initial proper locking,” WADA said it had sourced enough of the 2016 doping sample bottles, which were first used at the Rio Olympics, to cover the entire testing program for the PyeongChang Games, which start Feb. 9 in South Korea.

“At this stage, our clear recommendation to the IOC is that it continue to use the earlier model, which is still used by a number of testing authorities around the world. This should be seen as a precautionary measure that guarantees the integrity of the doping control process at the games,” WADA director general Olivier Niggli said.
