All Austrian raid athletes test negative – team

TURIN (Reuters) - All 10 Austrian athletes tested during a
drugs swoop last Saturday by International Olympic Committee
(IOC) officials at the Winter Games have proved negative, Leo
Wallner, president of the Austrian Olympic Committee, told
Reuters on Friday.

The Austrian biathlon and cross-country skiing teams have
been the subject of an IOC and police investigation after blood
transfusion equipment was found at lodgings in the raid.
