Press Release

28 June 2017 

The Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES) announced today that, Meana Franco, 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 13, 2017, revealed the presence of Oxandrolone, SARM LGD-4033, SARM S-22, and GW501516.  

In response to the CCES’ notification of the adverse analytical finding, Ms. Franco admitted the violation in a timely fashion (in accordance with CADP Rule 10.11.2), waived her right to a hearing and accepted a sanction of four years ineligibility from sport, terminating on March 13, 2021. The athlete, who resides in Ottawa, Ontario, 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 Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport is an independent, national, not-for profit organization. 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.
