IOC few weeks ago announced that they are retesting frozen doping samples from previous Olympic games. Their target was athletes that have a postnational to compete at the Rio Olympic games. The International Olympic Committee chief said that in their retests they are using the most advanced technologies to catch past dopers.    

The latest retest results from Beijing Olympics returned  30 positives, meanwhile London Olympics showed 23 positives.

"It is still being worked out," he said. "What we want to do, and are trying to do, is target athletes who have positive results and stop them from competing in Rio." IOC spokesman Mark Adams said .
