AGroupers want Ironman AG Doping Testing
AGroupers want more AG Doping Testing. Lets not be naïve, Not only Pros dope, AG dope too, perhaps even more. We ask Ironman to perform out of competition surprise testing. We want World 70.3 and IM AG Podium Top 3 Finishers tested. We want Fair Races!
As athletic performances of professional and top AG triathletes continue to improve, a ground swell of triathletes are requesting that IRONMAN seriously enforce the Anti-Doping policy for the 70.3 and Ironman World Championships AG winners. All AG winners in these races need to be drug tested. All triathletes need to be held accountable.
We continue to hear more and more about doping within the AG ranks and there is frustration throughout the triathlon community that it is not being addressed fully. As our sport continues to evolve, we want to make sure there is equity, fairness, and that no one is getting an unfair advantage through blood doping and/or illegal drugs.
We ask IRONMAN to take a firm stand now to ensure that all AG 70.3 and IM World Champions are not cheating. Standing on the podium as a world champion AG athlete requires months and months of hard work, so we need to be sure that our ethics are maintained at all levels throughout the sport. Enforcing the Anti-Doping policy is the right thing to do, so let's stop talking about it and let's act! We welcome your thoughts and recommendations relative to this situation that can undermine the future of our sport!
