*UPDATE* Ricky Garard Responds to His Drug Disqualification and 4 Year Ban from The CrossFit Games

Part 2 of Ricky Garard's statement.

You can find the first half of this statement here

***POST CONTINUED*** Because of this outcome I will learn a lot about myself, wipe my tears & be accountable for every single decision I make in this life. Ultimately that is what it means to be a man. 

I am reminding myself that sometimes life seems to be destroying you when it’s actually saving you, time will only reveal what it’s saving me from?

Haters will hate, and that’s ok. They are entitled to express their insecurities to the world. I will focus & deal with what is within my control.

This news is heavy, it’s real, but I will get myself together and keep moving forward. 

Sorry to anyone I have affected personally & sorry to anyone that is sharing my pain. I trust that the people closest to me will understand, remain loyal and be there to support me. 
I am coming to terms that nothing will ever be given to me in life, I know how to earn it the hard way & I will do just that for whatever it is I pursue next.

About The Author

Editor-In-Chief at BOXROX. I come from a background of rugby and weightlifting. Growing up in the English Lake District, I spent a great deal of time swimming in its stunning lakes and rivers. In 2015 my brothers and I became the first people to swim the 145km length of the River Eden, from source to mouth, in 9 days. We also swam the Corryvreckan whirlpool, the third largest in the world, and Crossfit is a huge part of my training for these events.
