Pound worried about German testing

By Susan Westemeyer

World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) head Richard Pound is not happy about reports that 400 out of 4500 doping tests were missed by the athletes. "I don't know if the number of 400 missed tests is right, but even if it's only half that many, then we have to worry about the German testing system," he said Wednesday at the WADA symposium in Lausanne, Switzerland.

German television ARD reported earlier this month on the missed doping controls. WADA asked the German anti-doping agency to submit a written report on the matter by January 31.
