South Florida's Olympic speed skater Eddy Alvarez got a special present for his birthday Thursday: Anti-doping control.

The Miami-native posted a picture of himself on Instagram with an anti-doping official. In the pic, he is grimacing. It's apparently also his birthday!

The text of the post reads "First day in Sochi on the day of my birth and I get stopped by anti doping control... I see how it is #athleteproblems."

On his Team USA profile, Alvarez says he loves mint chocolate chip ice cream, is a Miami Heat Fan and got into skating after rollerblading on South Beach streets.
