I think it would be a better choice to say: "In 2014 we will begin testing 20%..."

The current core of Arnold competitors spent a lot of time and money trying to qualify for this event, all while playing by the current rules. I simply think if there is testing in 2013, you punish these athletes who are playing by the rules for no good reason.
I have to agree with you.
