May 14, 2013, Ottawa, ON (ISN) – The Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES) announced today that Chris Korol has received a 15-month 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 SARM S-22, a prohibited anabolic agent.

In response to the CCES’ notification of the adverse analytical finding, Mr. Korol exercised his right to a hearing. Arbitrator Graeme Mew imposed a sanction of 15 months ineligibility from sport, terminating January 21, 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.
