Back in July CrossFit announced that Alyssa Wilhelm, team member of CrossFit 8035 at the North America West Semifinal, had tested positive for Ostarine and metabolites of GW501516, both banned substances. Wilhelm appealed the results and now, a month later, CrossFit has issued its final ruling.
Wilhelm has received the full four-year sanction for failing the in-competition drug test at Semifinals. Her four-year sanction begins retroactively on May 27, 2023, the date when the drug test was administered.
The sanction is just the fourth to be handed out during the 2023 CrossFit Games season. Oihana Moya’s appeal is the only remaining drug test sanction outstanding.
