As I mentioned in my comment on your original story, the FAME testing is a joke.

http://grg51.typepad.com/steroid_nation/2008/06/female-bodybuil.html#comment-119679238

According to FAME, if it's legal, then they consider it natural. They only ban "illegal substances." ACtually, according to their rules, even that isn't true. They only ban supplements that CAN NOT BE PURCHASED OVER THE COUNTER at a sports nutrition/supplement store.

If ONLY non-OTC substances are banned, this technically means that steroids (steroidal supplements) are permitted if they are sold OTC.

If an athlete ONLY takes OTC supplements and tests positive, then that is a FALSE NEGATIVE.

Collins, McDonald & Gann will take FAME to task for their incompetent, inconsistent and hypocritical rules and regulations on steroids, natural competition, and legal OTC supplements.

OMG, the FAME website actually acknowledges the incompetence of the urinalysis and the problem with FALSE NEGATIVES due to OTC steroidal supplements ("new methods... on the market")!!

Their foolproof solution to this problem: Physique Screening and Voice Stress Analysis! Too bad the IOC and WADA didn't think of that!

In the beginning urine testing was the only method that was proven to catch those who were trying to ‘get by’ the system. However, WNSO soon discovered that urine testing alone was not an effective measure since the test results only came back after the contest had ended allowing those who were not natural to still get the spotlight on stage taking away from those who were actually deserving. As well, new methods appeared on the market that made it much easier for athletes to provide a false negative test result.
Soon afterwards, WNSO implemented the Voice Stress Analysis Testing that was used by the Israeli Army at border crossings. They looked into Lie Detectors and Hair Follicle Tests but were not impressed with the amount of inaccurate readings that could occur. Blood Testing is too invasive and not allowed by certain religions.

Then in 2006, WNSO introduced the Physique Screening Panel as a method to ensure only those who had a natural looking physique would place well at the events. The Panel, made up of qualified WNSO officials and judges, is still the method adhered to today as the stage has never been more ‘clean’. The Panel evaluates every single athlete for signs that may indicate use of any banned substance. Should anyone show signs, or suggestions of usage, the Panel can take them into private screening rooms for further evaluation and actual questioning. If everyone on the Panel unanimously agrees that an athlete in question would not fair well in a contest for natural athletes, that athlete is not permitted to compete. All other athletes who the Panel is cautious about will then be subject to Urine Testing &/or the Voice Stress Analysis Testing.

I'm certain even Dick Pound is shaking his head in bewilderment!

Good afternoon,

> On May 24/08 at the Winnipeg FAME competition, I was singled out from all of the athletes in the show and tested for banned substances. The testing methods were questionable and were done by a stage hand without any paperwork or forms. This week, the test results came back as positive for clenbuterol (brief description: http://ifitandhealthy.com/clenbuterol-for-weight-loss ). Clenbuterol is not a steriod, but is a widely used (and unofficially accepted) fat-burner amongst many MABBA & CBBF athletes. The levels of clenbuterol found in my system were slightly above what is legally allowed, and it is important to note that the supplement was only used for three weeks.

After intense training for over a year in anticipation of my 2008 season, I was absolutely devastated to be held back with an injury. Seeking online advice from FAME Pros led me to believe that this supplement was ALSO widely used and accepted amongst FAME and its advanced athletes to streamline their fat loss. (I was entering FAME with false information that I would be competing at advanced levels in ALL categories.) I take full responsibility for making the wrong choice and realize now that it is not accepted in FAME to use this supplement - rather it is simply that FAME cannot catch everyone. I have apologized directly to the athletes who were affected by my decision to compete at the FAME show, and feel terribly that I entered the show with an advantage that is not accepted in that organization.

Your reputation is already shattered. And if you think for one minute, that most people will buy your sh*& and what you just posted, you are wrong.

What about the other substances? No comments on those?

And for christ sake already, use your real name, which is Julie in case you forgot, because you are far from a Jewel in this sport.

Avoid supplements that have not been around for longer than 3 years. I learned this phisophy from an Australian strength coach who recommended not trying any supplement until it has been around at least 3 years to pass the test of time. This will make your life much easier and help you avoid all the marketing hoopla in the latest fitness and bodybuilding magazine. [Continue Reading]

I don't think using steroids is legal if you are joining a competition like that.

Steroids get better and better. The more sophisticated they are the harder to detect. Once they find a test to detect them there will already be a new steroid on the market.
