In November 2022 the Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES) has reported an anti-doping rule violation against the football player Édouard Wanadi after his A and B samples tested positive for the prohibited substance GW501516.
Following notification a provisional suspension was ordered. After a Notice of Charge in December 2022 the Athlete requested in January 2023 for a hearing and challenged the violation and the proposed sanction.
Ultimately in April 2023 the Athlete chose to admit the violation, to waive his right for a hearing and to accept the sanction proposed by CCES.
Therefore CCES decides on 10 May 2023 to impose a 4 year period of ineligibility on the Athlete, starting on the date of the provisional suspension, i.e. on 10 November 2022.
