“The recent stir within the @crossfitcommunity has me processing a lot of thought and emotion. Mostly frustration and disappointment.

First, at myself. While it’d be easy to assume I’d be thrilled to move up from the 5th fittest to the 4th, it’s not that simple. Prior, the podium was well out of reach. Now, it’s as if it were only 4 points beyond my grasp. One more lunge, one more overhead squat, one more pound on the snatch and I could have achieved a major lifetime goal. Alas, all I can do about that is look forward and allow it fire me up to leave no doubt next season.

Then there’s the frustration on behalf of the @crossfitgames athletes and fans. As if we didn’t already get enough of the 💉 emojis and “no way these dudes are natural,” comments. Now, I’d imagine that within our community and beyond it’ll be even harder for people to believe that we train and compete with all natural integrity. That’s not fair to those who do.

Not really sure how to close this out.. hopefully it is a good thing that the testing protocol works and that scares more athletes away from PEDs. Congrats to @pvellner, I’m so sorry you didn’t get the true experience of the podium again this season. Perhaps we can share it together in the next!”
