Austrian downhill skier Hans Knauss found himself bounced from the 2006 Olympic Winter Games after a 2004 positive test for 19-norandrosterone found in a supplement sold to him by a ‘friend’ affiliated with Ultimate Nutrition, a U.S.-based company. This ingredient, however, did not appear on the contents list on the package.
(No, don’t eat the snow, Hans; it’s obviously chock full of tainted urine!)
Knauss took his anger and shame full speed at Ultimate Nutrition for their unclean supplement, apparently feeling that unlisted ingredients aren’t a bonus like cereal giveaways. He sued the pants off Ultimate Nutrition, reportedly receiving a hefty sum for his failed ambitions this week in a settlement.
