The Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES) announced today that Karla Godinez, a U SPORTS wrestling athlete affiliated with the University of the Fraser Valley, received a one-year sanction for an anti-doping rule violation. The athlete’s urine sample, collected during in-competition doping control on February 9, 2018, revealed the presence of SARM LGD-4033, a prohibited anabolic agent.
In response to the CCES’s notification of the adverse analytical finding, Ms. Godinez admitted the anti-doping rule violation in a timely fashion (in accordance with Canadian Anti-Doping Program (CADP) Rule 10.11.2), and a hearing was held to determine sanction length. Arbitrator David Bennett imposed a sanction of one year ineligibility from sport, terminating February 24, 2019. The athlete, who resides in Langley, BC, is ineligible to participate in any capacity with any sport signatory to the CADP, including training with teammates.
