2006 Mundial: Doping free!

All the analysis reports of the 2006 Olympic Qualification World Championships, held in Santo Domingo, DOM have now arrived at the IWF from the laboratory, which is, of course, a WADA-accredited one. 31% of the participants (149 competitors out of 484) were tested – a figure unparallelled among all sports – and only one is positive (not a medal winner), with the case still being in process.

It seems that the IWF’s powerful anti-doping campaign and strategy have brought their fruits: the World Championships may be regarded as doping free. The results and the altogether 10 world records achieved in Dominica can now be confirmed and registered as final.
