    U.S. ANTI-DOPING AGENCY ANNOUNCES FIRST QUARTER 2004 TESTING NUMBERS

    COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (May 28, 2004) - The United States Anti-Doping
    Agency (USADA) performed 1,866 domestic doping control tests during the
    first quarter of 2004, USADA Chief Executive Officer Terry Madden
    announced Friday.

    Those 1,866 doping control tests cover 62 sports. Overall, 56 percent of
    those first quarter tests were no-advance-notice out-of-competition
    tests.



    USADA conducted 1,041 no-advance-notice out-of-competition (OOC) tests
    between Jan. 1 and Mar. 31, 2004.



    The no-advance-notice OOC testing may be conducted at any time, whether
    at an athlete's home or training venue, and without prior notice.



    The remaining 825 tests were conducted in-competition during the first
    quarter. Those 825 tests tested were completed at 51 events.



    There were nine adverse laboratory findings received during the first
    quarter of 2004. The detection of a banned substance may or may not be
    ultimately determined to be a doping violation. The adverse findings
    include three cases involving prohibited anabolic agents, three cases
    for peptide hormones, mimetics and analogues, and one case each for
    stimulants, diuretics and cannabinoids for U.S. athletes. Two of those
    nine cases were for non-U.S. athletes and were referred to the
    responsible international federation.



    Three athletes refused to participate in an OOC test during the first
    quarter.



    There were 10 initial laboratory reports for samples for which the
    athletes had prior medical waivers on file for the use of the restricted
    substance. These test results are statistically reported as negative.



    In the first quarter of 2004, USADA announced sanctions for two athletes
    from the third quarter, and four cases from the fourth quarter in 2003.
    Additionally, two test refusal cases from the first quarter 2004 were
    announced.



    One case from third quarter 2003 was referred to the American
    Arbitration Association (AAA)/Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS)
    hearing process. The AAA/CAS hearing process begins after USADA has
    charged an athlete with a doping offense, and the athlete has elected
    not to accept the sanction sought by USADA. Plus, USADA did not go
    forward on two cases that the independent Anti-Doping Review Panel
    recommended did not have sufficient basis to proceed.



    During the first quarter of 2004, USADA performed 66 tests for other
    national anti-doping agencies and international federations. There were
    12 tests completed under USADA's bilateral agreements, as Canadian
    Center for Ethics in Sports (CCES) and the Australian Sports Drug Agency
    (ASDA) each performed four tests on U.S. athletes, and the USADA
    performed four tests on Australian athletes.

    USADA is the independent anti-doping agency for Olympic sports in the
    United States, and is responsible for managing the testing and
    adjudication process for the Olympic movement in the United States.
    USADA is equally dedicated to preserving the integrity of sport through
    research initiatives and educational programs.

    USADA announces its test findings four times annually. USADA will
    announce 2004 second quarter statistics in the summer.

    Note that track and field had about a quarter of the total tests, with cycling being far behind next.
