World Championship Trail Runner Tests Positive for Banned Substances

World Ultra-Trail Champion Angermund Faces Doping Scandal: The Inside Story

Stian Angermund, the reigning world short-course trail running champion from Norway, has been embroiled in controversy after testing positive for the banned substance chlorthalidone. This occurred after he won the 55km OCC event at the Ultra-Trail du Mont-Blanc for the second time last year. Despite the test results, Angermund maintains his innocence and is determined to clear his name.

The 37-year-old athlete has had a successful career, winning world trail running titles in 2022 and 2023, as well as the Golden Trail Series in 2018 and 2021. However, these accomplishments have now been overshadowed by doping allegations.

In a statement posted on social media, Angermund expressed his shock and disbelief at the test results, stating that he has never used any medications or supplements, nor has he ever taken or misused drugs. He is currently focused on vigorously defending his innocence and proving that he is a clean athlete, despite facing suspension and a pending investigation.

The implications of the positive test have had a profound impact on Angermund, who has expressed deep sadness and sorrow at the potential loss of his career and reputation. He has also emphasized the toll that this ordeal has taken on his mental and emotional well-being, and has called for caution and kindness from those who choose to believe in him or not.

Chlorthalidone is a diuretic that can be used to reduce body weight or as a masking agent. As he continues to fight to clear his name, Angermund’s future participation in future events remains uncertain. The outcome of this case will determine whether Angermund’s career will continue on its upward trajectory or if it will take a turn for the worse.
