Change to 2010 Affiliate Cup Rankings
A positive PED test disqualifies CFNE
The official rankings of the 2010 Affiliate Cup have changed. CrossFit Fort Vancouver is still the champ. CrossFit Omaha and CrossFit Albuquerque are now second and third (instead of third and fourth). CrossFit New England, which was in second, has been disqualified for a positive substance test.
Two athletes (Ben Bergeron and Derek Mohammed) from the CrossFit New England team tested positive for use of the stimulant methylhexanamine. Stimulants are banned for competitors under the CrossFit Games Drug Policy. This disqualifies the team from the 2010 CrossFit Games. The overall finishing order will be adjusted, with CrossFit Omaha moving into second place and CrossFit Albuquerque moving into third place. Ben and Derek will be automatically tested in any future Games for which they qualify.
The CrossFit Games are the world's broadest and most legitimate test of Fitness, and the use of performance enhancing drugs is strictly prohibited. The Games adhere to World Anti-Doping Agency standards, and testing is administered by Drug Free Sport, the official testing agency of the NFL, NBA, MLB, and NCAA. Athletes were tested with the same panel used in NCAA Championships.
Performance enhancing drugs (PEDs) are banned in any form. Common classes of banned substances include Anabolic Agents, Stimulants and Street Drugs. However, there is not a comprehensive list of ALL banned substances. It is the responsibility of the ATHLETE to ensure that they do not use classes of any banned substance in training or competition.
Use caution and ask questions about what you are taking if you plan on competing in the Games. Methylhexanamine, also known as Geranamine, is one of the ingredients in Jack3d, an energy drink that can be purchased at GNC over the counter. Just because a product is available at GNC does not mean it is good to go. Same goes for "natural" supplements. Energy products that claim to increase stamina, pills that claim to increase energy, and any product that promises increased performance should be carefully examined. If you are unsure, we recommend you err on the side of caution.
