USADA announced today that Noah Webb, of Los Angeles, Calif., an athlete in the sport of triathlon, has accepted a four-year period of ineligibility for an anti-doping rule violation.
Webb, 48, tested positive an anabolic agent as the result of an in-competition urine sample collected at the Toyota USA Triathlon Age Group Olympic National Championships on August 7, 2021. His urine sample was analyzed using a specialized test known as Isotope Ratio Mass Spectrometry (IRMS), which is capable of measuring the carbon isotope ratio of urinary steroids and confirming their synthetic origin—in this case, testosterone or its precursors. IRMS is a powerful tool that unequivocally differentiates between anabolic androgenic steroids (AAS) naturally produced by the body and AAS of synthetic origin. Anabolic agents like testosterone have powerful performance-enhancing capabilities and can give an athlete an unfair advantage over fellow competitors.
