Cycling Athlete Suspended for Refusing to Submit to Sample Collection

The Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES) announced today that Greg Doucette, a cycling athlete, received an eight-year sanction for a second anti-doping rule violation. The athlete refused to submit to sample collection during an in-competition doping control session on May 26, 2018.

In response to the CCES’s notification of the anti-doping rule violation, Mr. Doucette requested a hearing to determine the violation and whether the eight-year sanction period should be eliminated or reduced. On October 2, 2018, Arbitrator Allen Stitt confirmed the violation and imposed a sanction of eight years ineligibility from sport.

The athlete, who resides in Halifax, Nova Scotia, is ineligible to participate in any capacity with any sport signatory to the Canadian Anti-Doping Program (CADP), including training with teammates. A copy of the full decision can be found at www.crdsc-sdrcc.ca.
