U SPORTS Athlete Suspended for the Presence of anabolic agent
20th September 2019
The Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES) announced today that Dawson Odei, a U SPORTS football athlete affiliated with the University of Ottawa, received an 18-month sanction for an anti-doping rule violation. The athlete’s urine sample, collected during in-competition doping control on November 3, 2018, revealed the presence of dehydrochlormethyltestosterone, a prohibited anabolic agent.
In response to the CCES’s notification of the adverse analytical finding, Mr. Odei admitted the anti-doping rule violation and a hearing was held to determine the sanction length. Following an agreed to schedule of proceedings between both the CCES and athlete, a hearing was held on August 23, 2019. Arbitrator Peter Lawless imposed a sanction of 18 months ineligibility from sport, terminating June 11, 2020. During the sanction period, the athlete, who resides in Ottawa, ON, is ineligible to participate in any capacity with any sport signatory to the CADP, including training with teammates.
