Re: Wow, there all on steroids...

I have no idea if these people are using or not, nor do I care. But, the idea that they test in contest means next to nothing. People simply stop before the upcoming contest. Steroids benefit the most in training. Going off the drugs a couple of weeks out is still going to provide a huge benefit. Out of competition testing is the only way to really have a chance at catching people.

As for whether people will do it in a CF comp. Of course they will. People are competitive and they'll do it for no other reason than to win - even with no money. I compete in a tested PL federation. There is no money, and no fame and other untested federations available yet people still get caught using.

excerpts:
Quote:
All registered athletes are subject to performance-enhancing substance testing at any reasonable time before, during, and after CrossFit athletic events.
Quote:
8. Selected Types of Drug Testing



• Championships Testing

CrossFit Games individual/team championships events, selection of athletes may be based on random selection or position of finish.



• Unannounced Random Testing

All registered athletes who have signed the drug-testing consent form are subject to unannounced random testing. This includes at Sectional and Regional events for the CrossFit Games, and/or any other CrossFit sanctioned athletic events. Random selections will be generated electronically, maintaining objective and unbiased athlete selection.



Reasonable Suspicion Screening

An athlete may be subject to testing at any time when CrossFit determines there is individualized reasonable suspicion to believe the participant is using a prohibited substance. Such reasonable suspicion may be based on objective information as determined by CrossFit, and deemed reliable by such. Reasonable suspicion may include, without limitation, 1) observed possession or use of substances appearing to be prohibited drugs, 2) arrest or conviction for a criminal offense related to the possession or transfer of prohibited drugs or substances, or 3) observed abnormal appearance, conduct or behavior reasonably interpretable as being caused by the use of prohibited drugs or substances. If suspected, CrossFit will arrange for a no notice drug test. Note: The possession and/or use of banned substances may be determined by means other than urinalysis. When an individual is found to be in possession and/or using such substances, he/she will be subject to the same procedures that would be followed in the case of a positive urinalysis.
