RIO DE JANEIRO (Reuters) - The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) has reinstated credentials of a drug testing laboratory in Rio de Janeiro for the Olympic Games, Brazil's Sports Ministry said on Wednesday.

WADA had suspended credentials of the laboratory in June for failing to comply with international standards.
