Doping remains a concern as 2016 Olympics in Rio approach

A new report is out that doping continues to taint the Olympics.

According to the report by two European media outlets, one in three track and field medals won at the Olympics and World Championships from 2001 to 2012 were won by athletes with suspicious blood test results.

The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) is leading the investigation.

The president of the organization said this week, he is completely alarmed by these allegations.

"Athletes must be presumed to be innocent until proven guilty," Craig Reedie, president of the World Anti-Doping agency, said. "These are wild allegations, wide allegations, and we have to check them out, and we will have that done by the commission as quickly as possible."

In the past, the International Olympic Committee has stripped medals from athletes who have been found guilty of doping.

Most recently in May, the entire U.S Men's sprint relay team was stripped of its silver medal from the 2012 London Olympics as a result of Tyson Gay's doping case.

The U.S. was also stripped of gold in the women's 4x400-meter relay and bronze in the 4x100-meter relay following Marion Jones' admission of doping.

Jones returned her medals, but her teammates appealed and got to keep theirs.
