30 Out-Of-Competition Negative Tests Conducted in 2022 Including Toomey, O’Brien, Vellner and Medeiros

CrossFit released a list with the names of the athletes tested outside of competition.

A total of 27 elite-level CrossFit athletes had their name revealed by CrossFit who went through out-of-competition tests for any illegal substances. Athletes such as Tia-Clair Toomey and Pat Vellner, were negative – 3 athletes were tested twice in the past year, making a total of 30 out-of-competition negative tests conducted in the past year.

CrossFit Inc. is trying to be more transparent regarding the abuse of illegal substances by athletes and the testing procedure. In the weeks prior to the 2022 CrossFit Games, a total of 20 athletes tested positive for illegal substances and were banned from competing in any CrossFit-licensed event for the next few years.

At that point, many began questioning how clean the elite-level athletes were and perhaps that is the reasoning behind CrossFit releasing a list with 30 names of athletes who were tested in 2022 out-of-competition.

Out-Of-Competition Athletes Tested Negative for Illegal Substances

The 30 athletes who were tested and the results came back negative for out-of-competition tests were:

  1. Andrea Nisler
  2. Gabriela Migala
  3. Laura Horvath
  4. Sara Sigmundsdottir
  5. Ricky Garard
  6. Roman Khrennikov
  7. Guilherme Malheiros
  8. Zack George
  9. Jeffrey Adler
  10. Annie Thorisdottir
  11. Kristin Holte
  12. Tia-Clair Toomey
  13. Pat Vellner
  14. Saxon Panchik
  15. Björgvin Karl Guðmundsson
  16. Justin Medeiros
  17. Brent Fikowski
  18. Jonne Koski
  19. Alex Vigneault
  20. Lazar Dukic
  21. Noah Ohlsen
  22. Mallory O’Brien
  23. Kristi Eramo O’Connell
  24. Amanda Barnhart
  25. Danielle Brandon
  26. Brooke Wells
  27. Jayson Hopper

  • Gabriela Migala
  • Guilherme Malheiros
  • Laura Horvath

Laura Horvath, Gabriela Migala, BK Gudmundsson and Lazar Dukic were tested out-of-competition in 2022.

“The samples were collected by Doping Control Officers from Drug Free Sport International in November and December and analyzed at the UCLA Olympic Analytical Laboratory,” a press statement read. “The UCLA Lab screened the samples for the full WADA out-of-competition testing panel of banned substances.”

It is unclear if CrossFit conducted more out-of-competition tests that came back positive. If that is the case, CrossFit is still to reveal that information to the public. It is also unclear when each of those tests was made.

Out-of-competition tests take place at any point during the year so long as it is not conducted during or right after the end of a tournament. We know that some of the athletes on the list were actually tested in December of 2021, but the results were only published the following year.
