Premier cas de dopage aux CrossFit Games 2019

Le premier athlète à tomber sous la sanction d’un contrôle anti-dopage des CrossFit Games 2019 est une femme il s’agit de Katie Trombetta (@kt_trombetta) (44ème des CrossFit Games 2019).

Pas d’annonce officielle pour le moment mais Katie a confirmé l’information sur son compte Instagram. Elle a été contrôlée positive au GW1516 et Ostarine en août dernier à Madison. Elle est donc bannie pendant 4 ans de toute compétition de CrossFit (Sanctional, Open, Games ou événement sous licence CrossFit).

Les frères Garard et Shawn Ramirez avant elle.

C’est la 8ème fois depuis juin 2018 qu’un athlète est testé positif au GW1516 ou métabolites similaires, ce qui en fait la substance la plus répandue dans les tests positifs du fitness fonctionnel.

I’ve typed up this post quite a few times over the past month, and every time I abandon it because I can’t get my words right. I’d like to be completely transparent and honest about what has been one of the hardest periods of my life thus far. • At the end of August I got notification that I failed my drug test at the CrossFit Games. They found metabolites of GW1516 and Ostarine in my sample. The email was sent to my old email that I rarely check, and I missed the 72 hour deadline to dispute CrossFit’s findings. When I finally saw the email in September, I asked for an extension, and it was denied. I got one phone call to notify me of the results, and was coaching when it came through, didn’t recognize the number, so didn’t think anything of it. • I did not knowingly take these compounds they found in my system. GW1516 and Ostarine are two of the most common substances found in contaminated supplements. If you don’t know anything about the supplement industry, it’s very loosely regulated, and 1/3 to 1/2 of all supplements have something in them that isn’t listed on the label. I admit I was not as careful as I could have been leading up to the Games. I used other people’s pre-workouts, protein, creatine, and I take over the counter melatonin, calcium, and vitamin C. Anything I was taking could have had these compounds present. It’s upwards of $1000 per sample to test for unknown substances, and that is impossible financially for me. • I understand I’m responsible for what I put in my body, but I also have been unable to convince CrossFit to allow me to see my lab results to get an idea of the amounts in my system at the time. Since I missed the deadline, my B sample was refused as well. It’s very likely I will never know the cause of the positive test. • I have a 4 year ban from CrossFit. I won’t be competing after the 4 years. I’ll be 32. I’m too impatient and too angry with the sport that’s harshly punishing me for a mistake to wait that out. I am still allowed to compete in Sanctionals (if the individual sanctionals approve), or any competition not ran by CrossFit, but I can’t do the Open or compete to go to the Games. -continued in comments…

Extrait du post de Katie sur les faits : « À la fin du mois d’août, j’ai appris que j’avais échoué à mon test de dépistage de drogues aux CrossFit Games. Ils ont trouvé des modulateurs métaboliques (GW1516 et Ostarine) dans mon échantillon. Le mail a été envoyé sur mon ancienne boite mail que je vérifie rarement, et j’ai manqué le délai de 72 heures pour contester les conclusions de CrossFit Inc. Lorsque j’ai finalement vu le mail en septembre, j’ai demandé un délai supplémentaire, qui m’a été refusé. »

L’information officielle de la part de CrossFit HQ sera communiquée d’ici quelques semaines avec la liste complète des athlètes contrôlés positifs lors des CrossFit Games 2019.
