IAAF statement:

Monte-Carlo – The IAAF can confirm it has been advised by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) that three (3) athletes have returned positive tests to the new form of EPO named MIRCERA following re-analysis of samples taken by the IOC in Beijing. The IAAF understands that the relevant National Olympic Committees have been notified.

The cases are currently confidential, and the IAAF is bound by its Rules and unable to confirm the names or nationalities of any athletes involved or comment further at this stage.

B samples have to be tested, the IOC and IAAF have to get their information in line, then if everything still points to a violation we'll find out who the 3 athletes under IAAF jurisdiction are and what their suspensions will be.
