The powerlifter with the second highest Wilks total in CPU history, Greg Doucette, has tested positive for performance enhancing substances. Doucette's positive test came at the federation's Eastern Canadian Championships in November. In a statement at the CPU forum, Doucette says that he doesn't dispute "the test results but I do want to point out that I was not trying to cheat the system and had I been knowingly using a banned substance I would never have competed in the meet." Doucette explains that his positive was for the metabolite Boldenone and that he had a T/E ratio of 8 to 1, above the 6 to 1 limit. He says that the only new supplements that he has taken since his last drug test have been Pronabolin and Novadex. Doucette: "Obviously this is very devestating news as many people will believe that all my past lifting performances over the last 11 years of competition were a result of banned substances despite having been tested 14 times at various powerlifting events. I was extremely shocked by this news as I new it was extremely likely that I would be tested both in meet and out of meet which makes knowingly taking a steroid that is detectable for 1.5 years simply absurd. Had I actually tried to artificially enhance my lifting I would have used anavar or anadrol or something much more performance enhancing. Considering I was dieting for most of the year EQ would be the dumbest drug I could have taken. Dieting is hard enough without taking something to increase your apetite." Doucette was scheduled to compete in both the NAPF Quest Invitational and the USAPL Raw Challenge at the Arnold Classic. Doucette's statement.
