Not to take away from their hard work, but a lot of guys (and girls) at the top levels seem unnaturally big...

While it is generally assumed that they don't take anything funky, do these giant athletes on the National Team ever get tested at events? Are they ever confirmed natural rather than assumed natural?
how is OP salty?

I have seen several people tested, and have been selected myself, at a workout, not at an event.
Anyone can be tested, at anytime, whether at an event or not.
So yes, IDBF does test.

IDBF wants IOC membership bad. To get it they need to reach certain testing milestones. So, yes, they are testing and will continue testing.

They have been testing, and have always tested, right from the start.

for the ones who are halfway decently in shape I don't think most of them look unnaturally muscular. They look like typical amateur sprint sport athletes. There are probably some who are doping but the odds are pretty good that they won't get caught given the ineptitude of the governing bodies.

Then there is a not insignificant percentage of others who are unnaturally FAT. They are using all right - using chocolate donuts, cramming fistfuls of sweetened cereal into their mouths, loading up on the loaded 'tater skins.... and enhancing the body building by sitting in front of the TV most nights but making it out to dragon boat practice 3 times a week.

It depends on the hosting country and if they have money in their budget. The tests are $400.00/ea. in Italy, there was random testing. It was done by athlete PIN numbers and only done for the finals. Have not seen or heard anything since then. Nothing in Aus or China.

Someone came to a training session on the water here in USA, and tested.
You can be tested, anytime, for years, once you participate in an IDBF Worlds.
