Musclemania® announces hGH testing will be part of MM Universe next week in Florida. MM Pros competing at the show will be subjected to the blood test for human growth hormone which was first introduced at the 2004 Summer Olympic Games in Athens, Greece. The laboratory selected for MM testing is one of the two approved in the US by the World Anti-Doping Agency and the hired outside company administering the collection will follow strict WADA protocol and chain of custody procedures. Results will be reported within 10-14 days following the show. In addition to hGH testing, MM Pros and Open competitors will continue to be subjected to urinalysis testing for anabolic steroids, diuretics and other banned substances. Those results will be reported within 48 hours and prior to the show. MM continues to lead the sport of natural bodybuilding and honoring its commitment to its athletes and fans worldwide.
