(SwimSwam) After Rio de Janeiro’s anti-doping lab was stripped of its accreditation by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) last year, Brazil is still without a certified drug testing laboratory two years out from the next Olympics, which it will host.

 

Rio was without an accredited testing lab for the entirely of this summer’s World Cup, costing FIFA a quarter of a million dollars to ship all the World Cup-related drug testing samples to a lab in Lausanne, Switzerland, according to Inside the Games.
