I just saw the new rules re: drug/alcohol consumption at Worlds. They basically state that if anyone is caught doing either of these things, their entire gym is disqualified from Worlds and the specific team(s) they’re on are ineligible to compete the following year. The post goes on to say that rules are also enforceable retroactively and that if USASF receives proof that you broke the rules after the event is over, you’re still subject to the consequences. I’m on board with this, but I have questions. 1. Is this really a big enough issue that such draconian rules are necessary? I’m not questioning the decision, I just really don’t know. 2. Not sure how they’ll apply this to those athletes who are legally able to do some of these things. I guess the rules are the rules and you have to agree to them to participate in Worlds, but it seems like a bit of an overreach. 3. Also not sure how they’ll retroactively enforce this, if necessary. I assume USASF can only disqualify you if you were caught drinking/smoking at Worlds. So if they get a pic after the event of you allegedly doing either of these things “at Worlds,” how would they even prove that? Or is it enough that you were caught at all, regardless of where it happened? Because if that’s the case, that’s going to be a mess to arbitrate.
