ISN (Ottawa, Ontario )– The Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES) announced today that William Goodfellow, a cycling athlete, received a two-year sanction for an anti-doping rule violation. The athlete’s urine sample, collected during in-competition doping control on August 24, 2014, revealed the presence of clenbuterol and darbepoetin.
In response to the CCES’ notification of the adverse analytical finding, Mr. Goodfellow waived his right to a hearing and accepted a sanction of two years ineligibility from sport, terminating August 24, 2016. The athlete, who resides in Montreal, Quebec, is ineligible to participate in any capacity with any sport signatory to the Canadian Anti-Doping Program (CADP), including training with teammates.
