    Has anyone heard anything on Sonny Webster? The rumor mill is pretty confident he's been in an appeal on a doping violation and so far I haven't really been let down by the Reddit rumor mill when it comes to testing.

    My only evidence would be his Instagram has undergone that post pop transition where its very motivational, all about taking a break and having fun with the lifts, very aesthetic based as well, etc.

    Wow, that really surprises me, I've been to a couple of his seminars and he comes across as a complete natural athlete in how he trains, supplements etc, I realise that means nothing, but I just would never think of him doping, especially with his totals not being too big on the scale of things.

    Is there a link to it on Reddit?

    Same here, I wasn't really sold when I first heard it mentioned in a sub but as I've watched his instagram and compared it to people like Amy Hay, that Kyle guy, Jon North, and some elite level lifters I'm growing more convinced. I think if you just type Sonny Webster you'll find at least one thread that mentions it but I can't remember the thread it was first mentioned in because the comment was off-topic.

    Yeah, I did actually find the thread, it's all very vague though, a "rumour" of "some talk" in UK Weightlifting, I'd personally take it with a pinch of salt unless something comes of it, no-one apart from the thread poster seems to know anything about it.

    That main thread, I went back and looked at it myself. Isn't where I heard it first though. There was some vague rumors seeing as how he didn't compete in the Commonwealth games siting an "injury". I believed the injury report myself but now my minds all bottled.

    Here's one thread specifically about it, and I've seen it mentioned in some other threads.

    https://www.reddit.com/r/weightlifti...e_test_rumour/

    It was a new account and the thread was the first post, and never commented further in the thread itself. There's one other comment about it from the same account from a week ago also.

    Also it's talked about in this thread.

    No one should be surprised, he's like the Euro trash Jon North.

    There are lifters doping to lift in the B group at nationals. A good lifter can become great with drugs. A mediocre one isn't going to become a world champion with them.

    I laughed at this. I hate that he wears that stupid hat on the platform. I'm surprised the rules allow it.
