Demonising Justin Gatlin
13th September 2015
The Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES) announced today that Wade Cyr, a U SPORTS football athlete, received a four-year sanction for an anti-doping rule violation. The athlete’s urine sample, collected during in-competition doping control on August 31, 2017, revealed the presence of five prohibited substances: SARM S-22, SARM LGD-4033, drostanolone, GW501516 and letrozole.
Because Mr. Cyr failed to dispute the anti-doping rule violation within the timelines specified in the Canadian Anti-Doping Program (CADP), the violation and the sanction were confirmed by way of a deemed waiver. A sanction of four years was imposed, concluding on October 11, 2021. The athlete, who resides in St-Eustache, QC, is ineligible to participate in any capacity with any sport signatory to the CADP, including training with teammates. 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.
