LONDON (eme news) – IAAF President Sebastian Coe has claimed it would be “delusional” to say that the London 2012 Olympic Games were the "dirtiest" in history.

Coe’s statement follows the International Olympic Committee (IOC) announcing on Friday that 23 athletes have tested positive for banned substances following reanalysis of samples from the Games in the British capital. 

“It would make no sense and I do not think anyone seriously believes that even as recently as Sydney or Athens, that the technology, the systems and our understanding driven by technology and intelligence testing was on a lesser scale than then or Games 20, 30 or even 40 years ago," he said

Russian Olympic Committee (ROC) received official notice from the IOC that eight A samples of Russian Olympians from three sports were positive for banned substances after retesting London Olympic Games samples.
