Following the announcement that 8th place finisher at the Europe Regional, Gena Malkovsky, failed a drug test, Will Kane is saying that there is at least one more from the Europe Regional that is still fighting a failed test.
This comes just days after an athlete on CrossFit East Woodbridge shared that she failed a drug test due to a pre-workout supplement. CrossFit, however, has yet formally announce this disqualification.
CrossFit’s general policy is to drug test the top 5 athletes (who qualify for the Games) plus at least 6th place, but with multiple failed tests in Europe last year it appears CrossFit tested more this year.
Here are the top 10 who would possibly be at risk:
- Roman Khrennikov
- Adrian Mundwiler
- Lukas Hogberg
- Andrey Ganin
- Bjorgvin Gudmundsson
- Frederik Aegidius
- Bronislaw Olenkowicz
- Gena Malkovsky (already DQ’d)
- Jak Cornthwaite
- Lazar Dukic
- Will Kane
Last year CrossFit announced all of the failed drug tests at once, after the appeal(s) had been closed. That was on July 21, 2017. So expect more news coming over the next few weeks.
Stay tuned to The Barbell Spin as there is likely more to come of this over the next few weeks.
