IAAF plans 'comprehensive blood testing' at worlds
Wednesday - 7/24/2013, 4:08pm EDT
MONACO (AP) -- Track and field's governing body will use a "comprehensive blood testing program" at the world championships in Moscow.
The sport has been rocked by several doping scandals, with sprinters Tyson Gay, Asafa Powell and Sherone Simpson among a number of athletes to fail recent tests.
On Wednesday, the IAAF said it will have a "sophisticated anti-doping program" in place for worlds next month.
The IAAF will incorporate the findings into its biological passport program and use it to help detect "steroid or growth hormone doping more relevant to the power disciplines."
The passport program monitors an athlete's blood profile over time to look for any signs of doping.
The IAAF will test approximately 500 urine samples, which will be kept for long-term storage for possible re-analysis.
