The World Anti-Doping Agency is investigating “a matter” with a Moscow drug-testing lab but declined to give details, WADA president John Fahey said, according to The Associated Press.

IOC medical commission chairman Arne Ljungqvist expects to hear findings of an investigation in the next couple days, according to the AP. The Sochi Olympics begin Feb. 6.

The WADA-accredited Moscow lab handled drug tests for the World Track and Field Championships in August and was set to handle the tests in Sochi in February, according to the AP.
