March 7, 2013, Ottawa, ON (ISN) – The Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES) announced today that Alexander Hupe, a Canadian Junior Football League player, has received a two-year sanction for an anti-doping rule violation.

The athlete’s urine sample, collected during in-competition doping control on October 13, 2012, revealed the presence of testosterone, mesterolone and nandrolone, all prohibited anabolic agents.

Mr. Hupe chose not to engage in the results management process. Based on the evidence provided by the CCES, Arbitrator Hugh Fraser imposed a sanction of two years ineligibility from sport, terminating November 2, 2014. The athlete, who resides in Winnipeg, Manitoba, is ineligible to participate in any capacity with any sport signatory to the Canadian Anti-Doping Program (CADP), including training with teammates.
