LONDON, England (AP) — At the midway point of the London Olympics, no competitor has been caught doping at their event. At least, not yet.

Still, every day a different name of a suspected offender has emerged because of an extensive pre-Games testing programme to weed out drugs cheats before they got near a venue.

Yesterday, a Colombian runner, a Brazilian rower and a Moldovan hammer thrower all made minor headlines — and all were barred from starting their event.

Each case at this stage is judged a success in keeping the London Olympics clean.

From here on, every positive doping result from an in-competition sample becomes more problematic for the Olympic image.
