February 27, 2013 Ottawa, Ont (ISN) – The Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES) announced today that Jason Kerr, a bobsleigh athlete, has received a two-year sanction for an anti-doping rule violation.

The athlete’s urine sample, collected during out-of-competition doping control on November 13, 2012, revealed the presence of testosterone, boldenone, nandrolone and trenbolone – all of which are prohibited anabolic agents.

In response to the CCES’ notification of the adverse analytical finding, Mr. Kerr waived his right to a hearing, acknowledged the anti-doping rule violation, and accepted a two-year sanction ending November 13, 2014. The athlete, who resides in Calgary, Alberta, is ineligible to participate in any capacity with any sport signatory to the Canadian Anti-Doping Program (CADP), including training with teammates.
