FINA TO RETEST ROME CHAMPS’ DRUG SAMPLES

ROME - Swimming’s governing body plans to retest blood samples from last year’s world championships for evidence of doping.

After a meeting in Bangkok, the Federation Internationale de Natation said it would examine samples to check for the presence of “plasticizers” - tiny particles of plastic left over from blood bags.

In September, FINA said that of the 391 tests taken at the July 15-Aug. 2 championships in Rome, none came back positive. A total of 162 samples were screened for the blood-boosting hormone erythropoietin, or EPO.
