April 11, 2013, Ottawa, ON (ISN) – The Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES) announced today that Jordon Bruce, a bobsleigh athlete, 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 21, 2012, revealed the presence of methylhexanamine, a prohibited stimulant.

Mr. Bruce chose not to engage in the results management process. Based on the evidence provided by the CCES, Arbitrator John P. Sanderson imposed a sanction of two years ineligibility from sport, terminating March 27, 2015. 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.
