World’s No 1 bridge player suspended after failing a drugs test

quote [ Geir Helgemo, the world’s No 1 bridge player, has been suspended until 20 November after failing a drugs test ]

Good to see anti-doping taken seriously in lesser known 'sports'.

Synthetic testosterone & clomifene. They're claimed as not performance-enhancing for bridge, but part of a broader list of drugs banned for pro athletes. I wonder if Geir is a transman, and this is just part of his hormone regimen.

I wondered too. Why was he taking these drugs?

Too much caffeine pills?

It is essential to keep kids who aspire to bridge playing from experimenting with performance enhancing drugs.
