Yeah, when Pudzian got busted in 2004, he got busted for recreational drugs, not 'roids. However, they're a bit vague in the following quote.
'The doping tests are being conducted to make sure that the sport which is followed by a large number of young fans and families, remains clean and sets the example for the young generation.' Said Ali Gursoy, IFSA spokesperson.
'While IFSA allows several products which may be banned from other disciplines, the federation is particularly strict on substances that can affect the well being of its athletes.
The banned substances list is updated regularly and all are parties given access to this information.'
'This is the first case IFSA have encountered and obviously whilst making everybody extremely sad the federation had to take action for the interest and integrity of the sport and all the parties involved in the discipline,' continued Ali Gursoy.
