Hello guys,

Today i was arguing with my friend about boosting or using speed glue in big tournaments such as the olympics. I want to ask is it true that the chinese team uses speed glue but the air out the toxic fumes? 

Thank you

Hi Anthony,

There are strict testing procedures for glue now at the major tournaments.  If players use toxic glue the vapours are detected with a machine before they play.  They are not allowed to use the bat in this case.

If they use a toxic glue and leave it for a while, the effect of the glue will wear off and so will the vapours.
