Olympic Games Re-Analysis Programme

Since the Olympic Games Athens 2004, the anti-doping testing samples have been stored after each Games so they can be re-analysed when new information or more sophisticated detection tests and methods become available. After Rio 2016, the sample storage period was increased from eight to 10 years.

Ahead of the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020, the IOC Executive Board approved a budget of up to USD 5 million to cover the long-term storage for up to 10 years of pre-Games testing samples collected by International Federations and National Anti-Doping Organisations. The programme is managed by the International Testing Agency (ITA).

As part of the decision to make the anti-doping system completely independent, in 2019 the IOC delegated the selection of samples and the results management of the Olympic Games re-analysis programme (including for London 2012) to the ITA.
