RIO LAB CLOSED: The AP reported WADA "has suspended the testing laboratory in Olympic host city Rio de Janeiro for its second violation within 20 months." WADA announced the decision Friday, "10 months before soccer players' samples are expected to be analyzed there during the 2014 World Cup." WADA said that "its executive committee could decide on a 'possible revocation' of the Rio center's accreditation." It did not "specify a reason or identify which international standards the lab failed to meet" (AP, 8/10).
