Canadian bobsledder Derek Plug received a two-year ban on Monday after an out-of-competition doping control sample revealed the presence of a banned anabolic agent.

A urine sample taken on Sept. 17, 2012 indicated the presence of SARM S-22 in the Calgarian’s system, according to the Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport.

Although Plug has exercised his right to a hearing, he’s ineligible to compete in any sport that is a subscriber to the Canadian Anti-Doping Program.

Plug will be eligible to return to competition in late 2014.
