  • Caffeine

    Yo, Been a while since I posted here.
    I noticed the earlier thread on the Pan-Am Caffeine issue and It got me thinkin'

    What is the set legal limits on caffeine, for the NCAA, USATF, and the rest of the world?

    Just wonderin'.

    Latest information I can find from USOC says 12 mcg/ml.

    1 Vivarin (200 mcg of caffeine) is equivalent to 3 mcg/ml in urine within 2-3 hours of ingestion. Of course, everyone metabolizes caffeine differently so that would very from person to person.

      I can't swear to this with 100% certainty, but I believe Moses Kiptanui and a German woman (javelin thrower?) both beat caffeine raps in the last few years when they were able to demonstrate that legal amounts of ingestion would still give them an illegal titer.
