    Big news but I highly doubt he misses Pac 12s for a little weed

    Wow. This is interesting. Wonder how it will affect Olympic trials also

    Wow. That's a pretty harsh punishment if it was just marijuana...maybe something else involved?

    There is either more to the story or he has tested positive multiple times. Usually, the University handles the first and/or second positive tests internally. I think ASU has a 3 strikes and you are out policy on drug testing.

    ISU has the same 3 strikes you're out policy. They just don't announce it, that I am aware of but with it being done out of the country & the trials being involved, maybe they had to come clean?

    I agree there is either more to the story or Willie and other are jumping to conclusions

    For a sport that needs good publicity and wanting more fans this isn’t great news.

    If your not a wrestling fan you won’t even hear about it. If it’s just weed we need to make room at the CRTC for him. He can’t be worse than PD3.

    I assume it was a random drug test at the Italy event.

    Right, wrong or otherwise, I don't understand why someone like Zahid would put himself in this position. Senior year and Olympic year and Hodge candidate, so much to lose.

    Did you ever see the feature they did on Ben Askren when he was wrestling at Misery? It was kind of a day in the life thing during his senior year. Not the NCAA one, but the one done by the Big 12. I don't know how anyone could watch that and not suspect that Askren was toking it up regularly. Sometimes guys are lucky or clever (or the school helps them) so they never get caught.

    I did not. This doesn't sound like it was ASU that ran the test, so that maybe forced ASU's hand.

    Per source, I can confirm that Daton Fix has been popped by WADA (World Anti-Doping Association) for a failed PED test that was administered at the Mario Pellicone a few weeks ago. Fix may be out for the Olympic Trials as well... Wow!
