Doping claims are leaked to media
02 Aug 2015 22:10
The World Anti-Doping Agency has said it is alarmed by the size and extent of "wild" doping allegations after leaked IAAF test data showed hundreds of suspect samples from athletes, including Olympic and world championship medallists.
The claims are made in reports being carried by the Sunday Times and German broadcaster ARD/WDR.
Both media outlets say they have been handed leaked data relating to 12,000 blood tests from 5,000 international athletes over more than a decade.
They say the data reveals "the extraordinary extent of cheating by athletes at the world's top events".
According to the reports, one third of medals in endurance events at Olympics and World Championships between 2001 and 2012 were won by athletes who recorded suspicious tests.
