CrossFit Publishes List of Athletes Who Tested Negative During Out-of-Competition Drug Testing

Today, CrossFit shared the list of athletes who have taken and passed an out-of-competition drug test in 2021 and 2022.

In total, CrossFit conducted 18 out-of-competition drug tests in 2021 and 30 in 2022. Eight athletes, however, were tested twice. Those include:

  • Bjorgvin Karl Gudmundsson
  • Guilherme Malheiros
  • Jayson Hopper
  • Justin Medeiros
  • Laura Horvath
  • Mallory O-Brien
  • Patrick Vellner
  • Saxon Panchik

All of the podium finishers from the 2021 and 2022 CrossFit Games did receive at least one out-of-competition drug test over the past two years. It appears that the 2022 tests were conducted in November and December. It is unclear if the tests in 2021 were conducted in the same months.

Most of the athletes who received an out-of-competition drug test were Games veterans. However, Tayla Howe, Zack George and Reggie Fasa have never been to the Games and several athletes like Fee Saghafi, Rebecka Vitesson and Simon Mantyla have not been to the CrossFit Games since at least 2019. Additionally, Sylvania Harrod, a 2021 CrossFit Games veteran who competed in the Neuromuscular division, was tested in 2021.

Ricky Garard, who failed his in-competition drug test at the 2017 CrossFit Games, did receive an out-of-competition drug in 2022. However, he was not tested in 2021.

The samples were collected by Doping Control Officers from Drug Free Sport International and were analyzed at the UCLA Olympic Analytical Laboratory. The lab screened the samples for the full WADA out-of-competition testing panel of banned substances.

The move by CrossFit to publish the list of athletes who have been tested puts them in line with USADA. USADA has a searchable database that includes all samples collected from athletes conducted for USADA’s Olympic, Paralympic, Pan American, and Parapan American testing programs.

Here is the full list of athletes who received an out-of-competition drug test the past two years:
