Mat Fraser recently appeared as a guest on the famous Joe Rogan Podcast and talked about a broad range of topics, including PEDs in CrossFit and Olmpic Weightlifting.
Reliving his past weightlifting days, Mat Fraser explained that the US was one of the few countries whose athletes competed clean but it was hard to compete because athletes from other countries would use PEDs. Fraser said that he remembers an 18-year-old that snatching more than he could clean and jerk.
The conversation turned to PEDs in CrossFit.
“The one guy that he was on the podium at the Games and then got popped, I competed against him six or eight months prior. The one stat he was snatching like 260-265 and then shows up to the Games and snatches like 290 and he almost hit 300, and he’s like no no the drugs had nothing to do with that.”
