Italian Olympic body to increase random testing

 ROME (AP) -- Italy's National Olympic Committee will increase the number of random drug tests on athletes, but cut down on the number of routine ones.

 The switch brings the Italian committee, CONI, into line with International Olympic Committee directives.

 CONI said Thursday the change should boost its ability to detect the use of illegal performance-enhancing substances.

 The organization said that about 10 percent of the 10,000 tests administered in Italy have been random, as opposed to about 50 percent in other countries.
