LONDON---Britain s anti-doping
agency defended its procedures for
dealing with missed drug tests yes-
terday after it was reported that dis-
tance runner Mo Farah missed two
doping controls in the leadup to the
2012 London Olympics.
While declining to discuss Farah s
case, Anti-Doping Agency chief exec-
utive Nicole Sapstead said: "It is not
common for athletes to have two
Farah missed one test in 2010 and
another in 2011, according to the Daily
Mail newspaper. Under international
rules, three missed tests in a 12-month
period is considered a doping violation
that can be punished by a ban of two
years or more.
Had Farah missed a third test, he
could have been ruled out of the Lon-
don Games, where he won gold
medals in the 5,000 and 10,000
UKAD said athletes can also be
banned for one missed test if the
agency is convinced they deliberately
evaded it. UKAD officials declined to
discuss any specific cases, however,
and defended the need for anonymi-
"It s dangerous to put into the pub-
lic domain information about missed
tests when they can be genuine rea-
sons they have missed the tests,"
UKAD legal director Graham Arthur
"There might be lame excuses but
perhaps they don t have the circum-
stances around them to alert us to
the fact they might be evading. Too
little information in the wrong hands
can be dangerous."
The Farah report comes at a time
when his American coach, Alberto
Salazar, is under scrutiny amid doping
In investigations by the BBC and
ProPublica, Salazar was accused by
former assistant Steve Magness of
violating anti-doping rules and
encouraging doping by one of his top
runners, Galen Rupp.
Rupp won the silver medal in the
10,000 at the London Olympics, fin-
ishing behind Farah.
Salazar and Rupp have denied
wrongdoing. No accusations against
Farah were made in the investigations.
The Daily Mail said Farah s first
missed test occurred before he started
working with Salazar, with the second
coming in February 2011 after the run-
ner joined Salazar s Nike Oregon Proj-
ect in Oregon.
"If you miss another test, they will
hang you," the paper quoted Salazar
telling the runner in an email in May
Farah maintained he did not hear
the doorbell when he missed the sec-
ond test, the Daily Mail reported. His
agent, Ricky Simms, submitted video
evidence to back up that defense, the
UKAD said there were 66 missed
tests among the 365 athletes on the
testing register in 2011. In 2014, there
were 37 missed tests among a pool of
Farah said Wednesday he would
make his next appearance at the Dia-
mond League meet in Monaco on July
Murray stayed on course for a
record-tying fourth title at
Queen s Club by defeating Fer-
nando Verdasco 7-5, 6-4 in the
second round yesterday.
Murray is attempting to join
John McEnroe, Boris Becker, Andy
Roddick and Lleyton Hewitt as a
four-time winner, and broke Ver-
dasco for the second time to claim
the first set.
Verdasco wasted four break
points in Murray s first two service
games in the second set, but the
Spaniard was broken again in the
final game when he hit a backhand
wide on Murray s second match
"I thought it was fine," Murray
said of his performance. "I felt like
I dug myself out of a few difficult
situations when I was behind on
my serve. Especially in the second
set, I played some good points
there, a few aces, like right in the
right spots, a few onto the line at
Defending champion Grigor
Dimitrov lost to Gilles Muller of
Luxembourg 6-4, 7-6 (5). The
sixth-seeded Dimitrov won the
title last year by defeating Feliciano
Lopez, but has failed to reach a
final since. He was bidding to suc-
cessfully defend a title for the first
time in his career.
In a match of few rallies in
which Muller had 19 aces and
Dimitrov 15, the Bulgarian dou-
ble-faulted at 5-4 in the first set,
and made a forehand error to give
Muller the only break of the match
and the first set.
Dimitrov saved a break point at
2-1 in the second with a backhand
winner down the line, but Muller
was stronger in the tiebreaker.
"I don t think I m playing bad
tennis at the moment," Dimitrov
"I just am doing a lot of good
things on the court which really
don t discourage me to play. Of
course, it s a tough loss for me,
but I give credit to Gilles. He played
a good match."
In another big-serve show in
which John Isner hit 36 aces and
Feliciano Lopez 29, Isner made
the quarterfinals with a 7-6 (5),
6-7 (9), 7-6 (4) victory.
Lopez earned the first break
point of the match at 5-4 in the
second set, and although Isner
saved the set when Lopez returned
wide, the Spaniard went on to save
two match points and claim the
second tiebreaker on his fourth
Isner earned two more match
points at 5-4 in the final set, before
securing victory in the tiebreaker
on his sixth match point.
Fourth-seeded Marin Cilic failed
in his bid to repeat his 2012 title
run when the Croatian was defeat-
ed by Serbia s Viktor Troicki 6-7
(8), 6-2, 6-3. Troicki didn t drop
his serve, and broke Cilic three

After Farah report,
Britain says missed
tests 'not common'

final during the European Athletics Championships in Zurich, Switzerland. A

tests in the leadup to the 2012 London Olympics, where he won gold medals in
