    The CrossFit Games are the world’s premier and definitive test of fitness. To protect the integrity of the competition and its athletes, CrossFit works hard to ensure a level playing field, in part by creating and enforcing the guidelines outlined in the Rulebook, and in part by strongly enforcing an anti-doping policy—an absolute necessity in order to crown the Fittest on Earth.

    Each year, CrossFit Inc. expands its efforts and methods of testing. The following Regional athletes have been found in breach of CrossFit’s Drug Testing Policy.

    The athletes above have completed the appeals process. There are additional athletes who have been notified of a banned substance violation. Further results will be released when their appeals processes are complete. 

    Athletes who commit a violation of the Drug Testing Policy will have the right to state their case prior to any sanctions being imposed. Within 72 hours of being notified of their violation, an athlete must provide written notice of their intent to submit a written petition of appeal concerning the violation. A request by the athlete for any pertinent documents (if necessary or desired) must be made within this initial written notice and not at a later date. Thereafter, from the time of receipt of any materials provided by CrossFit, the athlete has 10 business days to submit the written petition of appeal explaining why they are not in violation of the Drug Testing Policy. Following a review of the athlete’s petition of appeal, CrossFit will respond in a timely manner to provide a written response of its decision, including supporting reasons, either to deny or grant the appeal. If, after this investigation, the athlete is found to be in violation of the Drug Testing Policy, CrossFit will proceed with applying any appropriate sanctions.
