CrossFit Cheating – Just like any major sport, cheating is here, and it’s here to stay. From PEDs to looping videos (which is crazy!), individuals are attempting to cheat their way to success. CrossFit has opened the floor to allow the community at large to help preserve the integrity of the sport.
On the back of the 2017 season with athletes like Ricky Gerard and others being found with banned substances in their drug tests, CrossFit has upped the barrier even more this year in order to discourage cheating, and to make it harder for anyone to slip through the cracks.
Here’s what you can do to help:
The intent of the CrossFit Games is to find the fittest athletes on Earth. As the world’s definition and test of fitness, CrossFit and CrossFit-sanctioned competitions stand not only as a testament to the athletes who compete, but to the training methodologies they use. We rely on the integrity of the community to assist us in upholding the stated rules in our worldwide test.
If you suspect an athlete, affiliate or team of cheating, it is encouraged that you report the violation in the correct manner. The CrossFit Games have set up forms and methods for submitting an anonymous allegation.
