A report from the paper on Wednesday said its investigation revealed â€œevidence of an organised drugs cultureâ€ in swimming.
TheTimes also reported that coaches offered employment at Russian swimming centers were assured there was a â€œpharmacological laboratory on site.â€ A coach described to the newspaper a scene at the FINA World Cup in Moscow last year in which a desk set up next to the poll [sic] had people with medicine, pills and bottles, which the coach described as a â€œpoolside apothecary.â€

According to The Times, (Sergei) Portugalov, the doctor behind the doping programme in athletics, has been encouraging swimmers in Russia to take illicit substances.
It is also claimed that two swimmers returned positive tests for erythropoietin (EPO), the blood-booster at the centre of the doping storm in cycling, but their results were covered up by the Russian Anti-Doping Agency (RUSADA).
