The IOC has been re-analysing samples from the last two Olympics, arthritis and now have found near 100 samples that show signs of doping. The names of all the athletes have not yet been released.
In the latest round of re-testing, four sports in Beijing were affected, and two in London.
Given the results of the recent McLaren report, it seems likely that it will be further bad news for Russia. The McLaren report outlined systematic, state-sponsored Russian doping between 2012 and 2015.
The IOC said that “The athletes, NOCs and IFs concerned are being informed, after which the proceedings against the athletes can begin. All athletes found to have infringed the anti-doping rules will be banned from competing at the Olympic Games Rio 2016”
