LAUSANNE, Switzerland — Athletes at the Beijing Olympics will be subject to no-advance notice doping controls at any time and any place, the IOC said Thursday.

The International Olympic Committee issued its anti-doping rules for the Aug. 8-24 games, which will include 4,500 tests, up from 3,600 in Athens four years ago.

The drug-testing program, which will start with the opening of the athletes village July 27, will include about 700-800 urine tests for EPO and 900 blood tests.
