Following on from British Powerlifting’s recent statement regarding drug test results I have now confirmed with Richard Parker that these were intended to reflect the Northern and Eastern District competitions last February. All seven samples collected from these events tested negative which is great news!
We are still awaiting the results of the Scottish Universities Championships and the Scottish Classic Championships. These will be published with the next update from BP.
I would just like to remind everyone that Scottish Powerlifting does NOT deal with the results of these tests – they are handled by British Powerlifting directly.
The Drug Control Officers (i.e. the people taking your sample) usually advise any tested individuals a timescale that they should hear back by if anything untoward was to come back in a test result. If you don’t hear from them by the proposed timescale this usually means you are clear. Confirmation is given by the BP updates.
