Chinese investigating WADA allegation that 99% raw materials for PED originate there

Quote:

World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) director general David Howman told Reuters in an interview last week that "ninety-nine percent" of the materials used by criminal gangs around the world to make the drugs were emanating from China.

"We are shocked at Mr. Howman's comment," Jiang Zhixue, the head of anti-doping at China's sports ministry, told the official Xinhua news agency.

"We are wondering where this 99 percent came from and what is his evidence. We have asked for a more detailed explanation from WADA."

Not even remotely true. There are far higher quality sources available, even in the US, through back channels. Maybe overt shipments mostly originate from China, but it's foolish to think that the fly-by-night operations brewing up these PEDs are buying solely from China.

It wouldn't surprise me if a large portion of the ingredients is bought from China but 99%? That's a little outlandish.
