>being tested pistive for banned ***
enhancing drug Mr Chen?
accusations are based on. Please take a minute to read on.............
In the 1970's and early 80's it is a common known fact that Russia, East
Germany and other eastern Block Countries used performance enhancing ***
to cheat in sport.
In 1984 not ONE Chinese swimmer made a final in the olympics.
In 1986 East german coach Klaus Rudolph completed an 8 month tour of China
instructing in "Advanced Training Methods"
Over the next few years several other East german "Experts" such as coaches
and sports scientists visited China.
In 1988 China improved to record 3 silver medal a bronze and 10 finalists.
In 1989 the Berlin wall fell, many east german coaches heading for China.
1990, the first positive drug test of a Chinese swimmer, the epidemic had
3 swimmers test positive at Chinese Nationals, equal to the total amount
ever located in the sport of swimming thus far. same say these positive
tests were only 'Sacrafices" to show the rest of the world that they were
fighting against *** in sport.
Another 5 test positive upto 1992.
1991 World C'ships chinese again under suspicion because of outstanding
performances by unseeded WOMEN swimmers.
1992 Olympics, China 4 gold and and 5 silver.
No finalists to 4 gold medals in 8 years, women only, a little strange don't
you think Mr Chen.
1994 - 4 more Chinese swimmers test positive
1994 worlds in Rome, Chinese women win 12 out of 16 events.
Shortly after 7 more Chinese test positive and 7 to 10 more had borderline
levels of testosterone ratios.
1995 they had a little rest, only 10 swimmers ranked in the top 25 and no
positive tests. Up to this moment the Chinese had recorded 19 of the Known
41 positive tests since 1990
1996 china back at it again making a resurgence with Chinese women climbing
up the rankings.
1996 Olympics only 1 gold medal, had they finally seen the light or had
technology caught up with their cheating system.
1997 Now this was their big year. Chinese women break world records (Set
by drug taking east germans) and record 10 times faster than 1996 Olympics.
And the Worlds in perth, well we all know the story, swimmers and coached
smuggling enough human growth Hormones to supply the team for several weeks,
4 more test positive during the meet,....shall I go on Mr Chen.
I guess our accusations could be wrong, but anyone with any common sense can
see that the Chinese have a systamatic doping program which seems to be
continuing to the demise of out wonderful sport.
Total tests positive CHINA 28 Australia 2 (Not performance enhancing I might
