Powerlifting Athlete Suspended for Presence of SARM S-22 and GW501516

(Ottawa, Ontario – August 20, 2018) – The Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES) announced today that Stanley Guedes, a powerlifting athlete, received a four-year sanction for an anti-doping rule violation. The athlete’s urine sample, collected during in-competition doping control on March 25, 2017, revealed the presence of SARM S-22 and GW501516, two prohibited substances.

In response to the CCES’s notification of the adverse analytical finding, Mr. Guedes admitted the violation in a timely fashion (in accordance with Canadian Anti-Doping Program (CADP) rule 10.11.2), waived his right to a hearing and accepted the proposed sanction of four years ineligibility from sport, which terminates on March 24, 2021. The athlete, who resides in Three Hills, Alberta, is ineligible to participate in any capacity with any sport signatory to the CADP, including training with teammates, during the sanction period.

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