Canadian bobsled pilot Chris Korol has been given a 15-month suspension by the Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport after testing positive for a prohibited anabolic agent.
The substance was detected in a urine sample collected during in-competition doping control on Oct. 21 at the Canadian bobsled championships in Calgary. The sample was found to contain SARM S-22, which the CCES classifies as a new drug with presumed anabolic properties.
In its decision, the CCES said "the mere presence of SARM S-22 in an athlete's sample is an anti-doping rule violation."
Korol, from Hamilton, piloted sleds in both the two-men and four-men competitions at the Canadian championships, finishing third in both races.
