Norwegian newspaper VG reports that WADA director Rune Andersen isn’t nearly as pessimistic as the Norwegian women’s national team coach Svein Tore Samdal regarding possible dopers chances of getting away with cheating.
Samdal is afraid that DYN-EPO can cause doping situations similar to what happened during the 2002 Olympics in Salt Lake City.
– I believe that DYN-EPO might have been mistaken for other blood-products available on the market. Our science department is working closely with the manufacturer of DYN-EPO. The fact is that the product is still not in production. It’s still being developed and is not in stock anywhere, explains Andresen from his office in Montreal, Canada.
– The only thing we don’t have full control over is growth hormones, but effective test methods are just around the corner.
– I don’t doubt that Samdal has good knowledge, but I’m very certain that we have things under control. I can actually promise that, says Andresen.
