I realize that over the years there have been many people around the world doubting my drug-free status. For most part, I take it as compliment. But, there have been many people or on many occasions where performance-enhancing drug-dealers claiming me to be one of their loyal customers in their pursuit to sell more drugs to their potential buyers.
This not only taints my goodwill and hard-earned trust, but also is bad for the development of Indonesia's fitness industry. I am well aware that my achievement as World Drug-Free Bodybuilding Champion in a small part, has become one of the prides of the Indonesian people. It is a privilege that I do not dare to waste and take for granted.
To clear my name once and for all, and for greater purpose of proving that what I have achieved can be emulated or followed by others without the use of performance-enhancing drugs, I hereby have issued an open challenge to anyone who doubts me.
I have put US$100,000.00 of my assets at stake to anyone who can prove that I indeed used or am using performance-enhancing IOC/WADA banned substances. This challenge can also be taken up by the lab officials who hold or keep my drug-test results from any of my past events. The legitimacy of the document must be verified by the governing bodies
For anyone who requests a drug-test to be performed (i.e the recipient of the challenge), here are some of the rules and conditions:
1. The recipient of the challenge will pay for all drug-test expenditures in advanced. If in any case my test results proof positive, I will happily reimburse the expenditures.
2. The recipient of the challenge has the rights to:
- Decide when the test is conducted
- Which drug(s) to test
3. All tests must be performed at a WADA/IOC-sanctioned laboratory and standards.
4. US$100,000.00 for each drug tested positive. So if the recipient of the challenge wants to test for 5 drugs, and if the results show I am tested positive for all 5 drugs, I will have to pay 5x US$100,000.00 to the recipient of the challenge. But if the results show I am tested negative for all 5 drugs, the recipient of the challenge must pay 5x US$100,000.00 to me.
5. Anyone who takes up this challenge MUST come forward with at least one national and international news channel/station, and print publication of the recipient's choice. This is the only way I can be sure the results be announced worldwide.
Anyone who wishes to accept the challenge, kindly contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and CC to the email of the news network and publications of choice.
