Athletics Athlete Suspended for the Presence of Three Prohibited Substances

(Ottawa, Ontario – September 24, 2015) – The Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES) announced today that Daniel Novia, an athletics athlete, received a sanction of three years and eight months for an anti-doping rule violation. The athlete’s urine sample, collected during in-competition doping control on July 5, 2015, revealed the presence of methasterone and testosterone, both anabolic agents, and tamoxifen, a hormone modulator.

Because Mr. Novia promptly admitted the violation and agreed to waive his right to a hearing, he was entitled to request a sanction reduction pursuant to Canadian Anti-Doping Program (CADP) Rule 10.6.3. The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) and the CCES jointly agreed to a reduced sanction of three years and eight months ineligibility, ending March 15, 2019. The athlete, who resides in Mississauga, 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’ reasoned decision can be found at www.cces.ca/canadian-sport-sanction-registry.  

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.
