"New" American Gladiators
I don't watch much tv, but I happened to catch the new version of "American Gladiators". Do y'all reckon that the producers of the show drug test the "gladiators"? Not as a preventitive measure mind you, but to ensure that they truly are taking steroids? I played rugby for 20 years, but never ran across that many folks in one place that looked like the "gladiators" look. It's kinda scary.

According to the official website of Michael O'Hearn (Titan, "Team Captain" of the gladiators):

A life-long proponent of the natural approach to bodybuilding and life, O'Hearn authored "Proven Techniques for Drug Free Bodybuilders" to inspire and teach the next generation of weightlifters and bodybuilders that you can achieve success without the use of enhancers such as steroids or growth hormones.
(technically nothing really objectionable, but I wouldn't consider this WFS because it's going to contain lots of photos of an oily muscle man in a thong)

Also here's an interview were it mentions him being natural.
(maybe not so WFS for reasons similar to above)
