Chase Ingraham: “Specifically to the 2017 CrossFit Games testing positive, did you knowingly take those PEDs for the CrossFit Games?” Ricky Garard: “Yes.” In the latest episode of the CrossFit Games podcast, Ricky Garard comes clean about testing positive for PEDs during the 2017 competitive season. Garard talks openly about his four-year suspension, processing the repercussions of his actions, and how he has learned and grown from his mistake. Seeking redemption, Garard is looking to earn his spot back on the competition floor to prove to himself, and the world, that he has what it takes to be a top competitor in the sport. Garard will be eligible to return to CrossFit competition on Oct. 3, 2021 and will compete at the Dubai CrossFit Championship in December.
