WADA president Fahey stated that the athletes stand only a small chance of escaping detection and added : "I say this in the clearest way possible: if you are a doping athlete and you are planning to compete in London then you must withdraw from your Olympic team, even if a doping athlete were to win a medal, he or she would never be able to look at themselves in the mirror and say, 'Well done, I deserved this.'"
Fahey noted that anti-doping bodies around the world are seeking to catch cheats before the games and said: "The IOC and London organizers will be carrying out up to 6,250 tests during the games.These will be the most tested games in Olympic history and doping athletes must know that they will be under the severe scrutiny of anti-doping officials from the moment they set foot in the Olympic Village."
Fahey also underlined that the athletes suspected of doping will be tested at training camps before the games, which will run from July 27 to August 12.
