    there wasn't that many from 2017 or 2018 either, so less than 10 is probably correct. otoh, never would have guessed egypt would of had so many at a competition in their backyard this year.

    Well, 2021 will be in Lima. 2022 in Chongqing. I said before I didn't expect to see much out of Ashgabat or Pattaya. I don't see why I'd expect either of those WWC's to have strict testing.

    I mean, from what I understand the Peruvian WL NGB is pushing WL hard. Which makes sense given that Peru is a smaller country that isn't well known for it's sporting prowess (I blame the party lifestyle of Lima and Peru-drinking, eating, drugs) so there is room to grow for the sport besides CF getting somewhat popular.

    I'm not sure it even has a WADA affiliate and I'm not sure we can really trust the Chinese WADA affiliate either though apparently Craig Reedly has praised them a bunch. I would guess that the Chinese affiliate is quite excellent at maintaining a pristine image on the surface to the public.

    It's worth remembering that the In-Competition testing is carried out by the ITA (International Testing Agency) owned by the IOC, rather than by the local NADO. Those samples are then sent to a WADA accredited Lab owned by a different body (for example, Montreal or Cologne), and then the results management is also now managed by the ITA - although these are new items.

    Previously, the IWF controlled results management and appointed the NADO that would carry out the testing protocol at each event - it is not the choice of the local organizing committee. Though, with that said, I can confirm USADA were the appointing doping control team in both Houston and Anaheim.

    China rarely ever gets tested positive so I really doubt they will in the future. I was a bit curious given this year in Pattaya except of course Thailand didn't compete. Turkmenistan and Thailand are hotbeds of political corruption. Hell, so is Peru but time will tell if history will repeat for them. I hope not as I do have a bajillion family members there (that tbh I barely know but they treat my Tia and Abuelita very well when they visit).

    The fact that so many tested positive from African Champs that was in Cairo means there may be hope for the ITA being able legit and not prone to corruption.

    It really makes one suspicious of the results from Worlds in 2014 compared to Houston. I'm a bit of a pessimist though.

    The African Games where Ahmed et al. tested positive were in Morocco, not Egypt.

    Erpel, I was going off this: https://www.iwf.net/downloads/?category=194

    https://www.iwf.net/new_bw/results_by_events/?event=450 I did find this but no female results. There are female results for the one in Cairo. Maybe it was just a db error or no results were put in the DB.

    Ahh, that was pretty damn recent. I had thought it was one from the spring. I don't see a gold, silver, bronze icon in the IWF calendar so dunno if these would be a qualifying competition for period2 unless they are like the PanAmGames which were supposed to be Silver level.
