CCES 2022 CCES vs Tayden De Pol

In May 2022 the Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES) has reported an anti-doping rule violation against the swimmer Tayden De Pol after his two samples - provided in March and in April 2022 - tested positive for the prohibited substance Methylphenidate related to medication he had used.

After notification the Athlete gave a prompt admission, waived his right for a hearing, accepted a provisional suspension and the sanction proposed by CCES. An application for a retroactive TUE was rejected by WADA.

CCES finds that the Athlete had failed to apply timely for a prospective TUE for his medication and considers that the Athlete had signed the Waiver of Hearing Form. Further CCES deems that the Athlete's two positive tests are considered as a single anti-doping rule violation.

Therefore CCES decides on 2 August 2022 to impose a 1 month period of ineligibility on the Athlete, starting on the date of the provisional suspension, i.e. on 17 May 2022.
