Seppelt also showed that Kenyan testers are just as easily bought.
And you think Jadco testers are harder to buy?
As for the numbershttps://wada-main-prod.s3.amazonaws.com/wada_2014_anti-doping-testing-figures_full-report_en.pdf
Total number of tests by RUSADA: 12556
Total number of tests by JADCO: 347
Total number of tests by Africa Zone V (that is Kenya, Eritrea, Ethiopia and a few other countries together): 53!
Even adjusting for population and/or number of top athletes that is alarmingly low.
Who the hell are you trying to fool ?
First and foremost, your figures don't take in account International federations numbers
Secondly , Russian figures are figures for ALL SPORTS.
Of course Russia is going to have much more tested athletes !! Russia is a 140 million + country with thousands of athletes competing in dozen of sports.
Except in T&F, where do you see Kenyan & Jamaican competing massively ?
Russia has pro leagues in : Football, Basket-Ball, Hockey, VolleyBall, HandBall,etc... most of the time for BOTH men & women !
They have more pro leagues than the USA !
These pro leagues attract a huge number of foreigners (who can be tested as well since they live on russian soil!) as the best teams are owned by tycoons/oligarches who pay extremely well.
They have also a huge number of athletes competing in various individual sports such as Winter sports, weightlifting, Tennis, combat sports, etc...
Didn't you see Russia topping the medal chart in Sochi Winter Olympics last year ? How many Jamaicans did you see there ?
In fact even in Athletics, Jamaicans are competitive only in a very select number of event.
