Multivitamin Hazard

By Laura Moncur @ 5:00 am — Filed under:

Do you really know what’s in your multi-vitamin? Unfortunately, Kicker Vencill didn’t. He was a 2004 Olympic Swimming hopeful who failed his urine test. He insisted that he had not taken steroids. The athletic community rolled its eyes at him and restricted him from competing for four years.

The truth was, he didn’t take steroids. His multi-vitamin, Super Complete, produced by Ultimate Nutrition, was found to be tainted with 19-norandrosterone. He just won a lawsuit against the company and his ban has been transmuted to two years.

Good luck at the trials for 2008, Kicker!
