Maximum-security lab! Rio Olympics doping lab takes extra measures to avoid tampering of samples

Fence, surveillance cameras, security guards, access restrictions… But make no mistake. This is not a prison, but the Rio Olympics doping laboratory. Security is the top focus for the lab, which will process about 6,000 blood and urine tests during the Olympic Games. Additional measures were taken after a report by the World Anti-Doping Agency alleged that samples of Russian athletes were swapped at the Russian lab during the 2014 Sochi Winter Games.
