ESPN has a series of documentaries called 30 for 30. About a month ago one was called 9.73*. The asterisk was for Ben Johnson testing positive while winning the 100 meters at the 1988 Olympics.

In the documentary, they interviewed a chemist who was responsible for drug testing. He said out of professional curiosity he started testing samples from over 20 years ago from previous Olympics. Because there are better tests today than way back then. He said he quit soon after starting and destroyed the results because a gross majority of samples were positive for something.
