U Sports Football Athlete Suspended for the Presence of D-Amphetamine

The Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES) announced today that Mickaël Badra, a U SPORTS football athlete affiliated with the University of Sherbrooke, received a sanction of four years for an anti-doping rule violation. The athlete’s urine sample, collected during in-competition doping control on October 19, 2019, revealed the presence of D-amphetamine, a prohibited stimulant.

In response to the CCES’s assertion, Mr. Badra requested a hearing to contest both the violation and proposed sanction. However, as Mr. Badra failed to participate in the hearing process, the hearing proceeded by way of a documentary review.

In his decision, Arbitrator Ross Dumoulin confirmed the asserted violation and imposed a sanction of four years ineligibility from sport, which concludes on January 29, 2024. During the sanction period, the athlete, who resides in Sherbrooke, QC, is ineligible to participate in any capacity with any sport signatory to the Canadian Anti-Doping Program (CADP), including training with teammates. The Full Decision can be found at www.crdsc-sdrcc.ca.
