The Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES) has announced that Dominic Picard, a cycling athlete, received a sanction of three years and nine months for an anti-doping rule violation. The athlete's urine sample, collected during in-competition doping control on June 28, 2015, revealed the presence of clenbuterol (an anabolic agent) and tamoxifen (a hormone modulator). The test was administered at the Coupe des Ameriques Masters event in Sutton, Quebec.
Because Mr. Picard 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 nine months ineligibility, ending April 14, 2019. The athlete, who resides in Laval, Quebec, is ineligible to participate in any capacity with any sport signatory to the CADP, including training with teammates.
