In cooperation with the National Anti-Doping Committee and after the analysis of the samples carried out by a laboratory accredited in Sibersdorf, Austria, 9 of the results were negative and one was positive.

This has led to the necessary procedures to be carried out and Macedonian Olympic Committee said that the final decision will soon be made public. /ibna/
