Swimming athlete, Alec Page, suspended for the presence of Probenecid

July 8, 2014 – The Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES) announced today that Alec Page, a swimming athlete, received a sanction of one month for an anti-doping rule violation. The athlete’s urine sample, collected during in-competition doping control on April 5, 2014, revealed the presence of probenecid, a prohibited masking agent.
In response to the CCES’ notification of the adverse analytical finding, Mr. Page admitted the anti-doping rule violation and waived his right to a hearing. Mr. Page was eligible for a reduced sanction and as his degree of fault for the violation was considered low, he accepted a one-month sanction which ended June 25, 2014. The athlete, who resides in Victoria, British Columbia, was ineligible to participate in any capacity with any sport signatory to the Canadian Anti-Doping Program (CADP), including training with teammates, during the term of suspension.
 
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.
