usadas first quarter doping stats 300x130   USADAs First Quarter Doping StatsThe results are in for the first quarter of 2010. The U.S. Anti-Doping Agency releases its report on tests made and a number of violations per sport. Out of the 1,868 doping control tests, a total of seven violations were gathered. Out of the seven, three were taken from non-analytical positives, one was found for a stimulant, another was found for an anabolic agent, one more for both (anabolic and stimulant) agents and lastly, one positive for marijuana.


In the cycling scene, only David Clinger was caught while the rest were mostly from the track & field sport. Clinger was sentenced to a two-year ban after having tested for synthetic testosterone and modafinil.


Val Barnwell, a Masters track & field athlete, was also caught positive with testosterone prohormones. This is indicative that testing for doping should not be limited to Elite levels alone.


On the report, it is interesting to note that sports like baseball, basketball and football hardly underwent any testing unlike other sports. Top sports tested by USADA are track & field, swimming, skiing & snowboarding and cycling with more than 100 doping tests given for the first quarter.
