JAKARTA (Reuters) – The three sports which recorded the most doping cases in the last 12 years risk being trimmed or dropped altogether from the Olympic Council of Asia (OCA) calendar, its president Sheikh Ahmed Al-Fahad Al-Ahmed Al-Sabah said on Monday.

Continental powerhouse China are not competing in weightlifting at the ongoing Asian Games after a one-year suspension on the lifters following multiple doping violations.

Its executive body, Sheikh Ahmed said, has decided to analyse the doping results of the last 12 years to identify the serial offenders.

“We want to see which three games have the highest number,” the Kuwaiti told reporters.

“When we know, we’ll put those under pressure.
