CIS Football Athlete Suspended for the Presence of Three Banned Substances

(Ottawa, Ontario – June 21, 2016) – The Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES) announced today that Moy McDonald, a Canadian Interuniversity Sport (CIS) football player from McGill University, 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 March 23, 2016, revealed the presence of SARM S-22, ibutamoren and clenbuterol.

In response to the CCES’ notification of the adverse analytical finding, Mr. McDonald waived his right to a hearing, acknowledged the anti-doping rule violation, and accepted a four-year sanction ending March 23, 2020. The athlete, who resides in St-Hubert, Quebec, is ineligible to participate in any capacity with any sport signatory to the Canadian Anti-Doping Program (CADP), including training with teammates.

In compliance with rule 7.10 of the CADP, a copy of the CCES’ file outcome summary can be found at www.cces.ca/sanctionreg.  

The CCES is an independent, national, not-for profit organization with a responsibility to administer the CADP. Under the CADP rules, the CCES announces publicly every anti-doping rule violation. We recognize that true sport can make a great difference for individuals, communities and our country. We are committed to working collaboratively to activate a values-based and principle-driven sport system; protecting the integrity of sport from the negative forces of doping and other unethical threats; and advocating for sport that is fair, safe and open to everyone.
