Positive Drug Test for Alycia Baumgardner Summons Defeated Challenger

Christina Linardatou, who lost to Alycia Baumgardner last month

punished and stripped of her championships after testing positive for two prohibited drugs.

The NIH website lists methenolone as an anabolic synthetic steroid.

Baumgardner, 29, who has never tested positive for a prohibited drug, said the negative findings made a positive finding “essentially impossible.”

“To be very clear, I know that I never have, never will, and never will use this or any other drug.

 therefore I know I would never put these things in my body.”

 I am also a proud role model for young women and girls who want to emulate me. I took those obligations seriously

As a professional athlete, I am solely accountable for what I put in my temple.
