Guangzhou, November 11 - The Guangzhou Asian Games adopted the international standards and procesures to run the doping tests to ensure a fair and just competition to every athletes, a leading official of the Games said here on Thursday.

Li Jie, Executive Director of the Doping Control Commanding Centre, told Xinhua that the doping tests were running smoothly to welcome the kick-off of the Guangzhou Asian Games on Friday evening.

About 70-80 doping tests had been conducted since November 6. The urine and blood samples are sent to the laboratory in Beijing every day.

"There is no difference between the Chinese and the foreign athletes on doping test. The organising committee hired the Beijing lab to conduct the tests because it is the nearest licensed lab of the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA)," Li said.

WADA had sent a team of experts to monitor the processions from sample pick-ups to the tests in Beiing, and officials of the Olympic Committee of Asia (OCA) followed the whole procesure during the Guangzhou Asian Games.

"The whole procession is open to officials from the WADA and the OCA. They are allowed to inspect all the 34 doping-control offices around the Games. And the results of the tests will be handed over to the International Olympic Committee (IOC) directly by the Beijing lab," Li added.

Over 1,500 tests will be conducted during the Games. These tests will be distributed to athletes of each nation and region based on the number of competitors of each team. China, which have the biggest delegation, will receive the most doping tests, Li said.

"We are ensuring the biggest and one of the best doping test tasks in the Asian Games history," Li vowed.
