IOC Approves EPO Test for Sydney

Aug 29, 2000

Yesterday the Legal Affairs Committee of the International Olympic Committee approved the use of a new test to detect (erythropoietine) EPO for use at the Sydney Olympic Games.

The test was approved by a committee of scientists in early August but had to pass this last hurdle, questioning the tests' ability to withstand legal challenges before it could be used in Sydney.
