Anyone who read Reuter's report about how IAAF conducted surprise test
to Ma's Army in China will laugh at this poster's ignorance, well, in
my opinion at the same time they should also give some credit to his active
imagination, too active, maybe.



:: This will be in Beijing airport going through Custom, if I understand
:: right. How do you know they will bring equipment in with them. My
:: impression is that they just come to collect urine samples, which needs
:: only some small bottles and a thermosbottle with ice to keep the samples
:: cold. They can hide their identity easily.
:"And what is your business in China during your stay?"  Every customs
:official on the planet asks this question.  And just think.  If your team
:is whining and moaning and screaming racism just because of a normal drug
:test, don't you think they would kinda lose their minds if the samples
:were transported out of the country to be tested?  I can just see it now:
:Those racist IOC testers crawled out from underneath America's ass, came
:to China to test our wonderful, drug-free sports team, and they did
:something to the samples on the way to their test sites.

:: There are many sites where they can go through the Custom. I don't think
:: every custom official are trained to look into sport issures. The
:: assumption that every custom officials will report drug testers is
:: unfounded.
:Well, let's see... The following questions will trigger the proper response:

:"Are you in China on business or pleasure" Business "What company?" IOC
:"What is the purpose of your visit to China"
:(In the case of bringing in the equipment) "Do you have anything to
:declare?"

:All of those are common questions.. It's a good guess that any Chinese
:Customs official with the brains God gave a squirrel would pick up on the
:purpose of the visit.

:: Which sports people? Do the officials know whom will be tested? Runner?
:: Disc throwers? Shotputters? Weight lifters? Cyclists? Rowwers? swimmers?
:: restlers? boxers?.............
:: You name it! Are you suggesting all Chinese athletes should be clean up
:: immediately when a small team of IOC testers comes. Maybe they are
:: here for : sightseeing.
:If they're there for sightseeing, they will say it upon entry.  Yes, I'm
:saying that all national teams would have to stop or hide the people who
:were.  This is one of the things that you have to do if you have an
:institutional drug program.

:: Wild imagination is no prove. Give some solid examples if you have any. It
:: has been said by many that it takes at least two weeks for drugged
:: athletes
:: to clean up. Tell me how can the two weeks been killed by filling forms.
:I'm sorry, you must have been reading a different r.s.o than I have... I
:distinctly heard somebody say 6 days.

Perhaps Zi-Wei Yang should learn about Netiquette before posting.  It is
common courtesy not to quote an entire post when your response will be
(in length) a small fraction of the original post.

Perhaps you could refute my article point by point using quotes from the
Reuters article.
