Lab returns after suspension
The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) has reinstated the accreditation for the Madrid based laboratory, with the three-month suspension that was handed down in December, ending early.
The lab was suspended for three months after an athlete - which Spanish newspaper AS claimed - was wrongly reported to have "tested positive" in a mix-up of urine samples last August.
According to reports in Spain, its Anti-Doping Agency (AEA) explained in a communique that Madrid’s anti-doping lab made the mix up prior to initiating the testing procedure, and one sample which was clean was contaminated with another that contained a high level of a banned substance. The person responsible for quality control resigned in the wake of the news.
Howeve,r on Friday WADA announced that the suspension had been lifted, issuing a press release that stated the lab was able to resume testing as of February 8.
