Demonising Justin Gatlin
13th September 2015
The Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES) announced today that Dushane Farrier, an athletics 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 July 3, 2015, revealed the presence of SARM S-22.
In response to the CCES’ notification of the adverse analytical finding, Mr. Farrier admitted the anti-doping rule violation and a hearing was held to determine the sanction length. Arbitrator Patrice Brunet imposed a sanction of four years ineligibility from sport, terminating July 2, 2019. The athlete, who resides in Toronto, Ontario, is ineligible to participate in any capacity with any sport signatory to the Canadian Anti-Doping Program (CADP), including training with teammates.
