Rio’s drug testing laboratory had its suspension lifted by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA), clearing it to operate at the Olympics from August 5. The doping control laboratory was suspended on June 22 due to non-conformity with the International Standard for Laboratories. “The confirmation of the laboratory as an institution responsible for the anti-doping tests during the Olympics and Paralympics at Rio 2016 reinforces the confidence of the Brazil sports ministry and Brazilian anti-doping agency in the work carried out by the Rio anti-doping lab,” said the Brazil sports ministry in a statement.
