Testing site

Testing sites needs to be private, large enough to fit the athlete, one coach/corner, chaperone, and examiner. The confidentiality of the Athlete’s results should be maintained in each exam.


Testing procedure

The Chaperone who observes the provision of the urine Sample by the Athlete is to be of the same gender as the Athlete and accompanies the Athlete to an area of privacy (e.g., the toilet facility) to collect the Sample.

With a marker, the Chaperone writes the Athlete’s full name, the date, and time of exam on the collecting vessel. Then confirms with the Athlete his/her name before passing the collecting vessel to the Athlete.

The Chaperone must have a clear and unobstructed view of the urine being collected in the urine collection vessel (at least 10 ml). The lid on the collecting vessel must be closed tightly.

The Athlete carries his/her Sample collection vessel to a safe and secure location in full view by the coach/corner, Chaperone, and examiner. If the sample is less than 10ml, than the specimen is disposed of and will need to wait for the collection. If the sample volume is adequate, then proceed to test the sample.

Prepare the SIEMENS Clinitek Status+ urine analyzer for testing and fill in the required registration and personal data. If the analyzer is ready for testing, dip the test strip into the sample. Every testing area of the strip must be in contact with the sample. Dry the test stick with a paper cleaning towel. Use the urine analyzer by following the instructions on the display and print out the results.

Document the reading on the weigh-in chart. Document must be signed by the Athlete, Coach, Chaperone, and examiner.

Test scenarios

1. Test day

  • If the athlete weighs in ≦ her/his weight class and the urine specific gravity is ≦1.0250, the athlete moves on and prepares for his competition.
  • If the athlete weighs in > her/his weight class and the urine specific gravity is ≦1.0250, the athlete must test and weigh in again the next day.
  • If the athlete weighs in ≦ her/his weight class and the urine specific gravity is >1.0250, the athlete must test and weigh in again the next day.
  • If the athlete weighs in > her/his weight class and the urine specific gravity is >1.0250, the athlete must test and weigh in again the next day.

2. Test day

  • If the athlete passes the specific gravity test and falls within his/her weight category, the athlete will move forward to compete.
  • If the athlete weighs in > his/her weight category and the urine specific gravity is ≦1.0250, the athlete can move up a weight category if there are not yet already two athletes registered in this category. If there is no possibility to move up the athlete, he/she will be disqualified.
  • If the athlete weighs in ≦ her/his weight class and the urine specific gravity is >1.0250, the athlete can move up a weight category if there are not yet already two athletes registered in this category. If there is no possibility to move up the athlete, he/she will be disqualified.

Please be aware: Weigh in always need to be with hydrated weight. So, athletes need to drink, before they will be approved to be to move up. Athletes must be weighted 30 minutes before the draw are scheduled.

  • If the athlete weighs in > her/his weight category and the urine specific gravity is >1.0250, the athlete can move up a weight division weight category if there are not yet already two athletes registered in this category. If there is no possibility to move up the athlete will be disqualified.

Please be aware: Weigh in always need to be with hydrated weight. Therefore, athletes need to drink, before he/she will be approved to be to move up. Athletes must be weighted 30 minutes before the draw are scheduled.

Regardless of Pass/Fail on the first two days of the test, all athletes need to pass the final weigh-in on the fight day.
