Gabor Torok is now giving his side of the story.
The former fittest man in the country of Hungary was one of five busted over the weekend by CrossFit HQ. Torok was busted for a Stanozolol metabolite. However, the 28-year-old was caught for Clomiphene. Clomiphene is a PED in the class of hormone and metabolic modulators.
In the end, Gabor Torok was suspended four years by CrossFit.
Torok took to social media to issue a statement on the drug bust.
“Humility, dedication, perseverance and diligence. For me, these four words describe the exemplary athlete well.
Competitive sport is not about everyday health. Everybody wants to be the best here, and he does it by fire over water.
I’ve been putting in hard work for years, giving 110% of every workout. I train 4-5 hours a day, plus 8 hours.
When I qualified for the Games, I trained even more.
I used supplements that help me recover quickly, but by no means an illegal power boost that helps me improve my stamina or be stronger. I got these during my workouts.”
Gabor Torok continued
“HQ has been suspended because of the use of a substance that I have NEVER taken. I have officially informed them. I appealed and provided all the information requested. Nevertheless, they decided to ban them for four years.
Of course, I won’t stop racing. In the future I will be competing in major European competitions (not organized by CF HQ). In addition, I put all my attention into the professional leadership of RX Nation and the preparation of racers following the RX Comp online program.
Thank you to everyone who has stood by me! I look ahead, with lots of new plans.
With humility, dedication, perseverance and diligence.”
