    Brother MOJO,

    Just a reminder. I know your schedule is tough to alter, but I will be visiting the site of my avatar Labor Day week (Saturday thru Saturday) and you and your clan are still welcome.

    Brother Morris,
    This is an interesting thread and I?m anxious to hear the experiences from others.

    While I don?t care to admit this but as a young wrestler our coach used to store the necessary materials in a well know location that would convert our shower into a sauna.
    He?d leave saying anyone wanted to work extra to lose necessary weight could ?have at it.?

    Also knew of a couple using speed in pill form to cut and suspected even before matches.

    It doesnt rise to steroid use but it was cheating. I admit to using the former many times but never the latter.

    Otherwise it was clean in my view. Rarely ever cheating like some sports.

    We had a kid who took ex-lax to make weight. The captain of the team found out and we as a group of seniors made a decision to tell the coach after he was disciplined by the team. Needless to say the coach didn't let him wrestle.

    I saw some cheating go on last weekend at an open H.S. tournament. A buddy of mine had a few kids from his team, one of which was going to wrestle. He was supposed to wrestle a kid who both of us knew. However, another kid, bigger and stronger, ended up on the mat. My buddy, recognized that it wasn't the right kid on the mat and said something. Later on, he asked the kid who was supposed to wrestle why he didn't come onto the mat first and he said "my coach told me I wasn't wrestling".
    This guy tried to pull a fast one at a tournament that meant exactly nothing, not that it matters whether it was a big tournament or not.
    He let himself down, for what...a woman. I say, go be a world champion let the women come to you......Tito Ortiz

    When I wrestled in college, both teams would weigh-in at their own facility with only their own coach checking.
    My coach never let us cheat and we trusted most of the other teams, but there was one team that was also suspected. Their guys always seemed big and they often had trouble making weight at conference when they had to do official weigh-ins.

    I think wrestlers are like most humans, that they will be more tempted to cheat the easy it is to get away with and the more there is to gain. We know there have been a bunch of Olympic wrestlers caught doping who have been from other countries (Faruk Sahin is the only US wrestling that I am aware of).

    Becasue most wrestlers are more obsessed with keepoing their weight down, I do not think steroid use is rampant, but it probably exists at the highest levels in the US and the rest of the world.

    Regarding the preseason hydration tests, I'd venture to say that every team "cheats".

    Could you elaborate?

    What do you mean by cheating the hydration tests?

    I would guess massive dehydration followed by pedolyte rehydration the night before certification. Do not know for sure if this works or is a myth but a high school team up here had almost all of their team fail the first cert and they supposedly did this routine and most passed 3 days later. No proof, just what the kids in this section said.
