Tokyo 2020: Covid-19 poses issues for dope tests

Mar 23, 2020 11:31 IST

With the future of the 2020 Tokyo games hanging in the balance, there seem to be more hurdles for participating athletes. Restrictions imposed due to the coronavirus pandemic have taken a hit on the number of doping tests being done. The summer games that were scheduled to start on July 24, ran into rough weather after anti-doping organisations in the US, France, Great Britain and Germany announced the reduction of doping tests for top athletes. The China agency for the anti-doping tests has completely suspended activity since February.
