USADA has posted the testing statistics for the first quarter of 2011 on its website. A total of 1,519 doping control tests were performed in the first quarter. Of those tests, 550 were performed in-competition, and 969 were out-of-competition (OOC) tests. OOC testing typically occurs at the athlete’s home, training facility or other location and is performed with no advance notice to the athlete; however, some OOC tests are coordinated during team training camps.

USADA is responsible for the testing and results management process for athletes in the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Movement, and is equally dedicated to preserving the integrity of sport through research initiatives and educational programs.
