Crossfit and steroids - crossfitters use steroids?

Do crossfit athletes use anabolic steroids? Have you ever wondered if athletes competing in crossfit international events consume or inject artificial anabolic steroids? By these "Roids" I mean testosterone types that are manufactured in laboratories (oxandrolone, Clenbuterol Anavar, Winstrol, Dianabol, Deca Durabolin, Primobolan, Anadrol, Sustanon 250, testosterone cypionate, Testosterone Enanthate, among others known and unknown "roids").
