Everyone’s On Steroids | PEDs Make Their Way To Dog Racing As One Greyhound Gets Popped For Drugs

It appears almost every sport is having issues with their top athletes failing drug tests.

Recently, Clonbrien Hero, a greyhound dog who won one of Ireland’s top greyhound races, tested positive for cocaine.

The Irish Greyhound Board has withheld the dog’s prize money and has banned the dog from racing until it passed a drug test.

According to the Irish Greyhound Board, they test between 5,000 and 6,000 dogs a year and have the “most intensive testing regime of any sport in Ireland”.

Graham Holland, the dog’s trainer, says the drugs must have been taken accidentally.

The sport of MMA has also had its fair share of high-profile fighters testing positive for banned substances. Former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones, who also once tested positive for cocaine use, has recently tested positive for steroid use. As a result, he was stripped of his title and had his last win overturned. He may also be facing a four-year suspension.
