May 30, 2013, Ottawa, ON, (ISN) – The Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES) announced today that Ilya Manukhov, a wrestling 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 March 23, 2013, revealed the presence of trenbolone (a prohibited anabolic agent) and letrozole (a prohibited hormone modulator).

In response to the CCES’ notification of the adverse analytical finding, Mr. Manukhov waived his right to a hearing, acknowledged the anti-doping rule violation, and accepted a two-year sanction ending May 8, 2015. The athlete, who resides in Toronto, Ontario, is ineligible to participate in any capacity with any sport signatory to the Canadian Anti-Doping Program (CADP), including training with teammates.
