Demonising Justin Gatlin
13th September 2015
The Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES) announced today that Thomas Jamael, a powerlifting athlete, received a sanction of four years for an anti-doping rule violation. The athlete’s urine sample, collected during in-competition doping control on February 11, 2017, revealed the presence of nandrolone, testosterone, methandienone, oxandrolone, oxymetholone, clostebol, boldenone and drostanolone (S.1 Anabolic Agents), tamoxifen and letrozole (S.4 Hormone and Metabolic Modulators), and cannabis (S.8 Cannabinoids).
In accordance with the Canadian Anti-Doping Program (CADP), if an athlete does not engage in the results process, the anti-doping rule violation and sanction are confirmed by way of a deemed waiver. Since Mr. Jamael did not engage in the results process, the violation was confirmed and a sanction was imposed starting on April 20, 2017. The athlete, who resides in Sydney, Nova Scotia, is ineligible to participate in any capacity with any sport signatory to the CADP, including training with teammates, until April 19, 2021. In compliance with rule 7.10 of the CADP, a copy of the CCES’ file outcome summary can be found at www.cces.ca/sanctionreg.
