WADA lifts suspension of doping lab for 2016 Rio Olympics

MONTREAL (AP) -- The World Anti-Doping Agency has lifted the suspension of the drug-testing lab in Rio de Janeiro, clearing the way for its use at next year's Olympics.

WADA revoked the credentials of Rio's lab in 2013 because of "repeated failures" in meeting agency standards.

WADA spokesman Ben Nichols says Wednesday the agency has decided to reaccredit the lab after it completed "the required remedial work."

Nichols said the decision was approved by WADA's executive committee.
