Every doping test conducted during this month's International Blind Sport Federation (IBSA) World Games in Seoul came back negative, it has been revealed.

A record number of 76 tests were conducted throughout the nine days Games, taking place in the South Korean capital from May 10 to 18, with approximately 7.5 per cent of the 6,000 athletes competing having been tested. 

Ten of those 76 samples were blood tests, it was also explained, with the IBSA "very happy" with the absence of any positive results. 

With the help of the IBSA Anti Doping Committee, they will now continue their efforts to "keep our sports clean and doping free".

Ten disciplines were contested in Seoul, consisting of athletics, swimming, judo, goalball, blind football, partially sighted football, ten-pin bowling, showdown, powerlifting and chess.
