Add one to the list of things Pete can't do on drugs: Competitive fishing is off the table. In an effort to root out cocaine-fueled fishing, the National Federation of Anglers says pee before you play:
Competitors at last week's World Angling Championships were told to give urine samples or face losing their prizes.
Astonishingly, the tests—which they all passed—were made because officials fear stimulants could give cheats an unfair advantage by sharpening their reflexes when they get a bite.
The anglers' response? "Now it's a real sport!"
But, after his initial shock, the 39-year-old admitted he came round to the testing plan.
"I think it's a good thing," he added. "It gives the sport credibility because we are subject to the same anti-doping tests as other sports. At this level, we all take angling very seriously."
