Ultimate Fitness Events will employ urinalysis as the method of drug testing used. Urine testing is recognized as the best practical way to screen for drug use. We contract the services of a laboratory in the U.S. that uses GC/MS testing, the “gold standard” in urinalysis testing, which can detect even trace amounts of steroids and their metabolites. At any given event, tests will be conducted on the winners OR a random selection of competitors OR competitors who were “flagged” by judges for drug testing to ensure that the best cross section of competitors has been tested throughout the year.
All results will be posted when lab results are received. Competitors who fail their first drug test will be disqualified from the competition at which they tested positive, but may return to competition once they are “clean.” These competitors, however, will remain on a “flagged list” and will be tested at each competition they participate in. Should they test positive at any time, they will be permanently banned from competition with Ultimate Fitness Events. In addition, should a competitor that has won a monetary prize and/or trophy test positive for banned substances, they will be expected to surrender all winnings and awards received at the competition. Failing this, UFE will employ legal measures to collect all winnings and may also take legal action for damages caused to the reputation of the organization.
