Un athlète de lutte suspendu pour la présence d’un agent anabolique
June 15, 2015 – The Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES) announced today that Khetag Pliev, a wrestling athlete, has received a four-year sanction for an anti-doping rule violation. The athlete’s urine samples, collected during out-of-competition doping control on March 18, 2015, as well as in-competition doping control on March 21, 2015, revealed the presence of dehydrochlormethyltestosterone – a prohibited anabolic agent.
In response to the CCES’ notification of the adverse analytical finding, Mr. Pliev waived his right to a hearing, acknowledged the anti-doping rule violation, and accepted a four-year sanction ending March 18, 2019. The athlete, who resides in Toronto, Ontario, is ineligible to participate in any capacity with any sport signatory to the Canadian Anti-Doping Program (CADP), including training with teammates.
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.
