Will Shanghai 2011 be a doping risk for athletes?


Interesting column here on SwimmingWorld Magazine, about the danger of inadvertent doping from contaminated food in China. Prior to the Beijing Games in 2008, the risks were know to be significant, and food control therefore strict in the Olympic village. The same risks exist today, but there will be no Olympic-type village at the World Championships in Shanghai. Is FINA taking any precautions, asks the columnist.
