STORY SCRIPT

Anti-doping measures at the Olympic Winter Games PyeongChang 2018 will be the most comprehensive and independent in Olympic history, according to the IOC’s medical chief.

IOC Medical Director Richard Budgett said: “In PyeongChang we are even more independent than in Rio and we are actually using the Global Association of International Federations in Sport to provide the decisions around who to test when and where, the so called ‘Test Distribution Plan’ to do all the therapeutic use exemptions and to decide which adverse analytical findings should go forward to a prosecution to become, maybe, an anti-doping rule violation. So it is as independent as possible and it also brings great new expertise to the games in doping control.”
