Nothing stopping them taking the blood test route if they are shy.

As I understand it, urine tests are mandatory. And I agree with Kurt on this one - when the rules require you to piss while under up-close-and-personal direct scrutiny of strangers (or even non-strangers) then things are totally f**ked up.


Would it be acceptable if they were MD's?

No. It is not their qualifications. It is the fact that folks have to pee while under intense close-up scrutiny.

So what are the actual rules, mandatory blood and urine, or just mandatory urine? I would have thought one blood test would be enough and preferable, given HGH is a blood test. Or are the urine tests more sensitive for steroids, so they need both?

Good lord- it isn't that big of deal.

Of course I say this after having a roomful of people watch something the size of a small watermelon come out of me. :D :P

Perhaps the perceived root of the complex imaginary problem.
