Special Report:   2008 Beijing Olympic Games

The head of the World Anti-Doping Agency, or WADA, says a lot of progress has been made in China's fight against doping in the lead up to the Beijing Olympic Games.

John Fahey made the comments in Beijing Thursday. He said WADA noted the progress during its role of independent observer of the anti-doping program at the Games. China has set up an independent anti-doping program and built a state-of-the-art lab.

China launched the new lab in late 2007 and it is one of the largest among the 33 accredited anti-doping labs around the world. At least 4,500 tests are expected to be conducted in the lab during the Beijing Olympics. China invested about 50 million yuan, or over 7 million US dollars, on the testing equipment.
