That's dope! Olympic golfers passed all drug tests

There were no anti-doping violations during this year’s Olympic men’s and women’s golf competitions, according to results released by the International Golf Federation.

All total, there were 197 tests performed in Rio during both competitions, 98 for the men and 99 for the women between May 6 and the end of the Games on Aug. 21.

The IGF conducted 124 of the tests, the International Olympic Committee conducted 47 and each nation’s anti-doping organization (the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency for U.S. athletes) administered 26 tests.

A report released by the World Anti-Doping Agency last month said the testing methods used for all sports during the Games had “serious failings.”

According to the WADA report, there were almost 500 fewer tests conducted than organizers had planned during the Games; largely because of “untrained and inexperienced chaperones.”
