The Canadian wrestler Colin Daynes failed a test for banned medications. Unfortunately, his Olympic dreams will not be real. He was sentenced to 2-year ban.
Last year the sportsman was chosen for the Windsor/Essex County Sports Hall of Fame.
The Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sports banned this wrestler. He failed a drug test, when he got a gold medal in the 74-kg weight class.
Colin Daynes tested positive for Drostanolone, Boldenone, Tamoxifen and Furosemide. Each of these drugs is included in the list of forbidden medications of the World Anti-Doping Agency. When it comes to Drostanolone and Boldenone, they belong to anabolic steroids. Furosemide represents a diuretic preparation. It serves as a masking agent for other products. Tamoxifen is a product which is advised for prevention of side effects that appear due to steroid cycles.
The wrestler admitted to administration of prohibited preparations and accepted the sentence. The wrestler said that he took the banned medications to receive recovery from an injury. The athlete told to The Star Monday night that he wanted to recover in order to be able to participate in the 2012 Olympic Games. Colin Daynes noted that a naturopathic physician recommended using these medicines. Colin Daynes also added that he hadn’t known that the products were banned. According to his affirmations, if he had known, he wouldn’t have competed.
Colin Daynes desired to represent Canada at the Olympics again. He represented his country at the 1996 Olympics that took place in Atlanta.
Daynes didn’t put efforts to defense himself. Colin Daynes noticed that there was no any difference whether the forbidden preparations were found in the blood or not. They were in the system.
Previously this athlete also competed in mixed martial arts. Colin Daynes had to qualify internationally. The athlete thought that he would compete at the Summer Olympics in London last time. Then the wrestler’s career comes to the end. But he was banned because of positives for prohibited preparations.
Bill Hogarth, Colin Daynes’ personal trainer, notes that that the things are too bad. But the athlete didn’t desire to cheat. Hogarth hopes that the wrestler’s reputation will not be destroyed. During the career Colin Daynes won 62 gold medals, 11 silver and 5 bronze medals.
