Laurier football players drug tested by surprise

CCES continues to increase the number of players screened for illegal substances


 

Wilfrid Laurier University football players were subject to a surprise drug test Wednesday morning. Of the 90 players on the team, 65 submitted blood or urine samples to the Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES). None of the players refused to be tested nor did any admit to using anabolic steroids, human growth hormone, or any other banned substance. The unannounced test is part of the CCES’s plan to increase the number of players screened for illegal substances, that was put in place after the University of Waterloo football team was suspended when several players either tested positive or refused to provide blood or urine samples.
