” As previously communicated the USAF US National Championships will be a tested anti doping event. We aspire to be completely transparent about the substances that will be tested for as such they are listed below for this purpose. All of these substances are commonly banned in sports all over the world. Please keep in mind this is a sport not a debate about an individual’s right to make their own choices. If you want to compete you must be compliant with these rules and banned substances.
Athletes must be prepared to detail any substances, vitamins, supplements or medications that they are taking. In the event that you draw a test you will be asked to detail all of these substances to ensure we have a clear understanding of what you are taking and why.
Any athlete that believes they have a Physician endorsed medical need to be using these substances must obtain approval from the USAF well in advance of the event. This can only be facilitated after the athlete has provided all requested documentation and substantiation to the USAF then allowing the USAF to consider the athletes request for a Therapeutic Use Exemption, (TUE). The USAF reserves the right to be the sole determiner of granting a TUE. To clarify, simply because you have a prescription for Testosterone does not mean the USAF will allow you to compete while using the substance. The intent is to ensure safety and create parity in the sport, as such a prescription does not grant any athlete the right to be enhanced while competing at the USAF event.
I am sure this will spawn a great many questions, please do not hesitate to ask we will do our best to respond.
Comprehensive Steroid Panel, all of the below as well as any other similar substance possessing the same metabolites.
Clenbuterol (anabolic agent)
Epitestosterone (masking agent)
Probenecid (masking agent)
Diuretic Panel, all of the below as well as any other similar substance possessing the same metabolites. This includes any over the counter diuretic or water controlling substances please be sure to review the ingredients of any substance you take.
Comprehensive 10 Panel for controlled substances. These are commonly sport anti doping controlled recreational drugs.
THC Creatinine (checks for dilution of the substance in the sample)
Dilute Creatinine (checks for the dilution of all other screened substances in the sample)
The top three athletes in each of the men’s open categories, both right and left handed will draw to randomly determine who will be tested. All of these finals athletes must have their photo IDs with them at all times.
If a top three athlete is not present to draw for testing, that athlete will automatically fail the drug screen process and be sanctioned accordingly.
Any athlete that attempts to evade, tamper with or otherwise refuses to comply with any portion of the anti-doping process, testing, requirements or testing instructions will automatically fail the drug screen process and be sanctioned accordingly. ”
