Racket Control and Doping Tests
The ITTF racket controllers have made 352 racket tests. There were no gluing problems. Only the thickness and flatness have caused some issues, but all players have had time to change their rubbers.
The doping control has been more intensive than in Greece. In Beijing there have been taken 40 tests, which corresponds to about 25% of the players.
