Spanish Doping Trial Releasing 200 blood bags to WADA – all sports

Even the doctor in the center of the scandal always maintained cyclists represented about 20% of his client base – despite only cyclists being named and “outed” at the trial (50 of them).

Now WADA will get to DNA test and cross reference 200 blood bags to the DNA profiles on the athlete biological passport database. Let’s look at which sports were opposing the release of this evidence to WADA.
