CCES Confirms Fifth CIS Football Anti-Doping Rule Violation at CFL Combines

Last week, the Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES) confirmed that five Canadian Interuniversity Sport (CIS) football athletes had returned doping control samples that tested positive for the presence of anabolic agents. The athletes’ urine samples were collected during out-of-competition doping control between March 25 and 27, 2015, at the Canadian Football League (CFL) Combines in Toronto, ON, and Montreal, QC.

Today, the CCES confirmed the final violation. Marvin-James Golding, a CIS football player from Saint Mary’s University, waived his right to a hearing, admitted the anti-doping rule violation for the presence of SARM-22 and accepted a four-year sanction ending March 25, 2019. The athlete, who resides in LaSalle, QC, is ineligible to participate in any capacity with any sport signatory to the Canadian Anti-Doping Program (CADP), including training with teammates.
