CCES: Doping Control Statistics for October to December 2005

The Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES) performed 658 doping control tests from October to December 2005. Testing under the national program accounted for 491 of these tests, with 70% conducted out of competition.

The CCES carried out 120 in-competition tests during nine international events held in Canada. These events included World Cups for FIS, FIL, ISU and FIBT, and the World Junior Hockey Championships. Out-of competition contract testing was conducted for the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) (32 tests) and for various federations (15 tests).

"The CCES was excited to announce a new online Drug Information Database ( in December to help athletes determine which medications and other substances are prohibited by WADA," said Jeremy Luke, General Manager of the Anti-Doping Program. "It's been popular with athletes, coaches and parents, with an average of almost 2,000 enquiries per month. We plan to continue improving the service in concert with our partner, UK Sport."

Two anti-doping rule violations were reported this quarter. A violation for cocaine in the sport of wrestling resulted in a two-year sanction, and a violation by an equestrian athlete for cannabinoids resulted in a sanction of a warning and reprimand and no period of ineligibility. In addition, a swimming coach was reinstated into sport after a successful appeal.

The CCES is an independent, national, non-profit organization, whose mission, to promote ethical conduct in all aspects of sport in Canada, is carried out through research, promotion, education, detection and deterrence, as well as through programs and partnerships with other organizations.
