July 10/24 16:05 pm - Canadian Para-cyclist Receives 4 Year Doping Sanction

Posted by Editoress on 07/10/24

The Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES) announced today that Tarek Dahab, a para cycling athlete, received a four-year sanction for an anti-doping rule violation. The athlete’s urine sample, collected out of competition on November 13, 2023, revealed the presence of testosterone, a prohibited anabolic agent.




In response to the CCES's notification of the adverse analytical finding, the athlete did not dispute the finding and requested a hearing to determine whether the proposed sanction period should be eliminated or reduced. On February 12, 2024, Arbitrator Patrice Brunet confirmed the violation and imposed a four-year sanction. Following the arbitrator's decision, Cycling Canada filed an appeal of the hearing decision. Arbitrator Carol Roberts denied the appeal and upheld the violation and four-year sanction, which ends on December 20, 2027.

During the sanction period, the athlete is ineligible to participate in any capacity with any sport signatory to the Canadian Anti-Doping Program (CADP) or the World Anti-Doping Code, including training with teammates.
