– The world anti-doping Agency (WADA) has reviewed the media reports regarding the alleged use of doping by Chinese athletes in 1980-1990-h years, and intends to investigate those charges. This is stated in an official statement, WADA.

On the alleged mass use by athletes of prohibited substances was reported by Chinese doctor Xue Insane, which in those years worked with many athletes of China. In another documentary, Hyo Seppelt on the channel ARD has told that more than 10 thousand people were involved in the alleged state system of doping.

Xue Insan said that the athletes literally had to leave the team if they refused to take banned substances. According to her, the doping used even 11-year-olds. She is convinced that almost all the medals and awards won by China in that period were ill-gotten.

She left her post in Chinese sport in the Olympics in 1998 due to the failure of doping athletes. According to Xue Insane, then she and her family were subjected to pressure from the authorities, with the result that they had to leave China.

In a statement, WADA emphasizes that the Agency in its present form was created only in 1999. However, its experts are going to investigate the accusations.
