Thursday April 18, 2019 - Email this article to a friend

The International Ski Federation gives details of all the doping tests in the past year, both in & out of competition.






It says it collected a total of 651 urine, 247 blood and 1,078 blood passport samples across the six FIS Olympic disciplines.

The figures cover the 2018-19 season, including the training period, starting on 1st May 2018.

The majority of the tests were conducted outside of competition.

FIS says that many more doping control samples were collected under the authority of individual Naitonal Anti-Doping Agencies and these are not included in the FIS statistics.

The most tested discipline was cross-country skiing.

The sport has been hit by a doping scandal.

Nine people, including five cross-country skiers suspected of blood doping, were arrested in a police raid at the Nordic World Ski Championships in Seefeld, Austria, on 1st March.
