Weightlifting Athlete Suspended for the Presence of Methandienone

The Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES) announced today that Jason Trinh, a weightlifting athlete, received a four-year sanction for an anti-doping rule violation. The athlete’s urine sample, collected during out-of-competition doping control on June 29, 2017, revealed the presence of methandienone.

In response to the CCES’ notification of the adverse analytical finding, Mr. Trinh admitted the violation in a timely fashion (in accordance with CADP Rule 10.11.2), waived his right to a hearing and accepted a sanction of four years ineligibility from sport, terminating on June 28, 2021. The athlete, who resides in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, is ineligible to participate in any capacity with any sport signatory to the CADP, including training with teammates. In compliance with rule 7.10 of the CADP, a copy of the CCES’ file summary can be found at www.cces.ca/canadian-sport-sanction-registry.
