“I am relieved to have solved this problem. We explained to them the circumstances and that I was not using any PEDs. I injured my wrist in February and after that I felt extreme pain in training. So I was prescribed anti-inflammatories and that made my wrist swell up, so then I started taking diuretics to expel the water out. When they sent that guy to my gym, I was still taking diuretics. And when you fail a test people don’t want to know if it was diuretics or steroids. I don’t use PEDs or steroids. I have nothing to hide and I am glad we solved this.”
