The link above which said she made such statement, in reality says this:
"He (Ma Junren) and his athletes were steamed by charges about drugs. ?These people themselves are taking drugs,? he said, noting that the only secret substances his athletes indulge in is the concoction made from caterpillar fungus, and a soft-shell turtle stew."
I was very happy at the time of Wang, Qu, and the others smashing the records, and wanted to learn much more about them.
Unfortunately that was lost to everyone by the stupidity of ignorant westerners.
Hi, Dunes! Good to know you're still ignorant as can be.
Try this out. And lest you attribute this bit of reportage to the journalist's bias, understand that it's one of many, many articles from the mainstream press on Ma's Tainted Army. Others are here (note the bit about Dong Yanmei), here (scroll to the bottom, if you can figure out how) and here.
The fact that Wang Junxia was not named is all but irrelevant. Here we have her coach, long heard to spout bullshit about fungus and turtle-shell soup, caught doping a slew of his best distance runners. Wang never ran faster than around 30:50 outside of China - well over a lap slower than her "world rercord" - and in fact ran consistently in that fast-but-not-unreal range. So in short, the level of credulity one has to harbor in order to believe the '93 marks are in any way legit is in itself astounding.
"Ignorant Westerners" indeed! How appropriate a term for you to sling around. But you've been a shit-fer-brains since time immemorial, so no surprise there. Remember how ardently you defended Regina Jacobs? This is take two.
