Natalie Newhart Failed a Drug Test and is Suspended from CrossFit Events for 2 Years

This is a bummer to report, but CrossFit HQ posted a brief article on their site this evening stating Natalie Newhart has failed a drug test, testing positive for the anabolic steroid oxandrolone.

Natalie isn’t very active on Facebook or Instagram and hasn’t posted anything about the issue herself.

Here’s what CrossFit has to say…

“Natalie Newhart, a competitor at the 2013 Reebok CrossFit Games, has tested positive for a performance-enhancing drug.

Newhart submitted to an out-of-competition drug test on Feb. 27, 2016, which came back positive for the anabolic agent oxandrolone.

Newhart is not appealing the results.

She will be suspended for two years as of March 17, and will not be able to compete in any CrossFit-sanctioned event until March 18, 2018. Her scores from this year’s Open will be invalidated.

CrossFit tests year-round for performance-enhancing drugs. Learn about CrossFit’s Drug Testing Program.”
