The Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES) has released the statistics for doping control tests conducted between October and December of 2012. During that period there were five anti-doping violations, including the one for cyclist Michael Barry, who admitted to using EPO, hGH and testosterone during his career, as part of his affidavit to the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) in the Lance Armstrong investigation. Barry received a reduced six month suspension (which ended on March 10, 2013) for his testimony, but has since retired.

In the fourth quarter of 2012, the CCES conducted a total of 114 In-Competition test (all urine tests) and 390 Out-of-Competition tests (331 Urine and 59 Blood).

Cycling was the sixth most tested sport, with 31 tests for both Able and Para. Cross-country Skiing was the most tested with 50 tests, followed by Bobsleigh (45), Rowing (42), Speedskating (35) and Rugby (34).

Full statistics for the Quarter can be read Here.
