WADA to Assist Spanish Authorities in Doping Investigation

The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) today announced that it will assist the Spanish authorities in their investigation into possible doping practices in sport.

Following the seizure of various equipment, substances, and bags of blood by the Spanish police in late May, the Spanish Superior Council for Sports requested WADA’s scientific assistance to make sure that these be analyzed in the best possible way.

WADA welcomed this request and will provide full support. In addition, the Agency will send experts to Spain this week to help the Spanish authorities in their ongoing work.
