While we’ve already seen track and wrestling athletes stripped of their medals from London (and somehow Greece), we’ve got some good news from the folks in the pool: of the 518 doping tests administered to aquatic athletes at the Summer Games, exactly zero came back positive.

FINA, which oversees swimming, diving, open water, synchronized swimming, and water polo announced that 433 urine tests and 85 blood tests were found clean of any performance-enhancing drugs. The good news came Sunday, ahead of the short-course worlds that start in Istanbul on Wednesday.
