90-Year-Old Cyclist Stripped Of Title After Failing Anti-Doping Test


90-year-old cyclist Carl Grove was the lone competitor in his age group at last year's U.S. Masters Track Championships. The near octagenarian set an age-group world record in the individual pursuit with a time of 3:06:129. Unfortunately, Grove has since tested positive for the banned steroid epitrenbolone in a drug test administered after the race. DeadSpin reports the USADA released a statement saying, that while Grove came up positive for the banned substances, they believe the positive test was the result of a contaminant in a legal supplement he was taking. Even though the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency let Grove off with a public warning, he has been stripped of his world record.
