THE Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES) announced on Thursday that Jasonpreet (Jason) Bains, a U Sports wrestling athlete affiliated with the University of the Fraser Valley, received a sanction of four years for an anti-doping rule violation. The athlete’s urine sample, collected during in-competition doping control on February 21, 2020, revealed the presence of dehydrochlormethyltestosterone, a prohibited anabolic agent.
In response to the CCES’s notification of the adverse analytical finding, Bains admitted the violation in a timely fashion, and a hearing was held to determine the sanction length. Arbitrator Jonathan Fidler confirmed the violation and imposed a sanction of four years ineligibility from sport, terminating April 2, 2024. During the sanction period, the athlete, who resides in Surrey, is ineligible to participate in any capacity with any sport signatory to the CADP, including training with teammates.

Bains won a silver medal in the 100 kg weight category at this year’s U Sport National Championships hosted by Brock University in St Catharines, Ontario, and qualified for the U Sport Nationals. He has now been stripped of the medal.
