Canada: Fifth football player gets sanction after doping tests
A Saint Mary’s University football player who tested positive for anabolic steroids has received sanctions, the Canadian Centre for Ethics In Sports said on Thursday. CCES says Marvin-James Golding tested positive for the presence of SARM-22 after routine doping tests. He’s the fourth student from the Halifax university to be punished after a routine test, and the fifth overall. Golding, who lives in LaSalle, QC, waived his right to a hearing and admitted to the violation. Golding has been given the same punishment handed to his teammates: a four-year sanction that ends March 25, 2019. The other football players who received sanctions are:
  • Kayin Marchand-Wright, SMU football player, tested positive for selective androgen receptor modulator (SARM-22).
  • Melvin Abankwah, SMU football player, tested positive for methandienone.
  • Jonathan Langa, SMU football player, tested positive for methandienone and stanozolol.
  • Matthew Norzil, Université Laval, tested positive for SARM-22.
Golding will not be allowed to play — in any capacity — in a sport that conforms to rules of the Canadian Anti-Doping Program. http://www.cbc.ca/m/news/canada/nova-scotia/fifth-football-player-gets-sanction-after-doping-tests-1.3072929
