Surprise dope tests during Commonwealth Games 2010

In their bid to make the 19th Commonwealth Games a dope-free event, the Organising Committee with the support of Commonwealth Games Federation on Tuesday said that participating athletes would be subjected to surprise tests to deter them from using banned drugs.

The OC said that participating athletes from the 71 Commonwealth countries would be subjected to unannounced doping control tests, anytime and anywhere during the period of the Games.

The programme will act as a blend of deterrence, detection and education.

The CGF has approved a test distribution plan of 1,500 control tests — the highest at any Commonwealth Games.

The tests will comprise of urine, blood and breathe analysis, the OC said in a statement.

The committee said it would set up doping control facilities at all competition venues and training venues at par with international standards.
