Canadian powerlifter Thomas Jamael has been banned four years after testing positive for 11 banned substances.

Jamael's urine sample was tested in-competition on Feb. 11.

It revealed the presence of anabolic steroids nandrolone, testosterone, methandienone, oxandrolone, oxymetholone, clostebol, boldenone and drostanolone, plus tamoxifen and letrozole which are hormone and metabolic modulators, along with cannabis.

The Sydney, N.S., resident is ineligible to participate in any capacity in any sport that has adopted the Canadian Anti-Doping Program (CADP) regulations, including training with teammates, until April 19 of 2021.
