A former University of Manitoba football player has been suspended after testing positive for Oxandrolone, a prohibited steroid.
Ranji Atwall was given a four-year sanction from the Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sports after a sample collected in March tested positive.
The university’s Bison Sports called Atwall’s actions disappointing.
“Bison Sports is disappointed that a student-athlete has chosen to break the terms of their code of conduct agreement with the University and the CIS by violating anti-doping regulations,” said Coleen Dufresne, Athletic Director of Bison Sports. “The University of Manitoba is unequivocally opposed to the use of any banned substance or performance-enhancing drugs or practices in contravention of the rules of the Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES).”
