August 08, 2012 (Ottawa, ON) – The Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES) announced today that cyclist Greg Cavanagh has received a two-year sanction for an anti-doping rule violation. The athlete’s urine sample, collected during in-competition doping control on June 10, 2012, revealed the presence of testosterone, a prohibited anabolic agent.
In response to the CCES’ notification of the adverse analytical finding, Cavanagh waived his right to a hearing, acknowledged the anti-doping rule violation, and accepted a two-year sanction ending July 9, 2014. The athlete is ineligible to participate in any capacity with any sport signatory to the Canadian Anti-Doping Program (CADP), including training with teammates.
