U SPORTS Football Athlete Suspended for Presence of Five Prohibited Substances

(Ottawa, Ontario – December 14, 2017) – The Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES) announced today that Wade Cyr, a U SPORTS football athlete, received a four-year sanction for an anti-doping rule violation. The athlete’s urine sample, collected during in-competition doping control on August 31, 2017, revealed the presence of five prohibited substances: SARM S-22, SARM LGD-4033, drostanolone, GW501516 and letrozole.  

Because Mr. Cyr 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 October 11, 2021. The athlete, who resides in St-Eustache, QC, 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 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.
