161 Days ago

Brasilia, March 20 (IANS) Brazil has been approved to conduct drug testing of athletes during the upcoming Rio 2016 Olympics and Paralympic Games, the media reported on Sunday.

Brazil was one of five countries ordered by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) to implement changes to meet its requirements by March 18, Xinhua news agency reported.

"(Brazil) has met the necessary requirements, which included the establishment of a unique Brazilian anti-doping tribunal and the implementation of the Code within the Brazilian legal system," WADA said in a statement on Saturday.

Belgium, France and Greece also received approval from the Montreal-based organisation while Spain and Mexico were declared non-compliant.

According to WADA rules, Spain and Mexico could be stripped of accreditation for their testing laboratories.

While Brazil was deemed to have complied with WADA regulations, its congress must pass legislation related to the new rules within three months.

The Rio Olympics will take place from August 5-21 and the Paralympics will be held from September 7-18. (IANS)
