LONDON, June 17 (DS) -

World Cup 2002 has been declared drugs free after no positive doping tests were revealed during the first 17 days of the event, the BBC reported.
Officials said that not a single banned substance had been found in the tests conducted on 204 players.
Only one sample was considered to be "suspicious" by FIFA after a higher than usual blood count, however later the sample was announced to be negative as well.
World Cup chief medical officer Jiri Dvorak attributed the latest results to greater awareness of the participants. "We are starting to harvest fruits of long term educational programs," he said.
"Most of the teams have tested the food supplements they have given the players so they know exactly what they are given out.
"Also for FIFA it is much easier to educate, there is one sport, one family and one approach. In the Olympics, there are many sports and many approaches."

I have a feeling they MUST be collecting urine at a Convent somewhere :dielaugh:

This is good news from FIFA for a change.:)

The thing which should be worrying FIFA is not doping but the standard of refreeing in this WC.:fero: :cry: :crazy: :wallbang: . They need to pull their pants up before anymore crazy things happen.
