Posted by Editor on 01/20/14
The Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES) announced today that Sebastian Salas, a cycling athlete, has received a two-year sanction for an anti-doping rule violation. The violation, Tampering with Doping Control, occurred during in-competition testing on July 10, 2013. [Note: This was the day of the Gastown GP]
In response to the CCES’ notification of the violation, Mr. Salas fully explored his rights under the Canadian Anti-Doping Program (CADP) and eventually chose to admit the doping control violation, waive his right to a hearing, and accept a two-year sanction ending August 1, 2015. The athlete, who resides in Vancouver, British Columbia, is ineligible to participate in any capacity with any sport signatory to the CADP, including training with teammates.
