Norwegian IOC member signals doping disclosures due

IOC Oslo  - More alleged doping cases connected to the recent Beijing Games are pending, a Norwegian member of the International Olympic Committee said Thursday.

Gerhard Heiberg's remarks were made on the eve of a meeting of the Olympic movement's ruling body in Lausanne, Switzerland this weekend.

The cases concern "several people from several nations" and several different events, Heiberg told broadcaster NRK, adding he was "not surprised."

"We had expected more to be caught during the games. Luckily there weren't more, but I said that more were due and we are going to consider them," Heiberg said.

The IOC member said he could not name the athletes but said the IOC would meet with the athletes suspected of doping. The cases were based on tests of both A- and B-samples.

Heiberg said the names likely would be disclosed after the IOC meeting in Lausanne this weekend, the report said. (dpa)
