WEG: All Human Athletes Tested Negative for Prohibited Substances

The FEI announced today that all urine samples taken from athletes competing at the 2010 Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games have tested negative for prohibited substances. The announcement comes just one week after the FEI revealed that all equine blood and urine samples were also free of prohibited substances.

"Clean sport is one of the FEI's major goals," FEI President HRH Princess Haya said, "and it is wonderful news that all tests on our human and equine athletes at the 2010 Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games were negative. The FEI Clean Sport Campaign is all inclusive and covers every aspect of our sport. With everyone on side we really can move forward in the drive for fair play and a level playing field for all."

A total of 24 human athletes were tested for prohibited substances during the 16 day Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games, with urine samples taken from three athletes in each of the eight disciplines.

Testing was carried out in accordance with World Anti Doping Agency (WADA) and FEI Anti-Doping Rules for Human Athletes. More information on these procedures can be found within the http://www.feicleansport.org.
