March 13, 2013, Ottawa, ON (ISN) – The Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES) announced today that lacrosse athlete Lewis Ratcliff has received a two-year sanction for an anti-doping rule violation.

The athlete’s urine sample, collected during in-competition doping control on September 12, 2012, revealed the presence of oxandrolone and clenbuterol, two prohibited anabolic agents, as well as oxycodone, a prohibited narcotic.

In response to the CCES’ notification of the adverse analytical finding, Mr. Ratcliff waived his right to hearing, acknowledged the anti-doping rule violation, and accepted a two-year sanction ending November 9, 2014. The athlete, who resides in Redmond, Washington, is ineligible to participate in any capacity with any sport signatory to the Canadian Anti-Doping Program (CADP), including training with teammates.
