Cheer Athlete Suspended for the Presence of GW501516

The Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES) announced today that Marc-André Lauzon, a cheer athlete, received a sanction of four years for an anti-doping rule violation. The athlete’s urine sample, collected during out-of-competition doping control on December 29, 2019, revealed the presence of GW501516, a prohibited metabolic modulator.

Because Mr. Lauzon 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 January 28, 2024. During the sanction period, the athlete, who resides in La Prairie, QC, is ineligible to participate in any capacity with any sport signatory to the CADP, including training with teammates.
