Taylor Findlay was tested out-of-competition in February 2016. On May 1st the Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sports (CCES) publicly disclosed the decision to ban the weightlifter for four years.
Findlay, who works full time at a veterinary clinic, told in her hearing she ate horse meat at a French restaurant prior to her sample being collected out-of-competition. The analysis found a presence of clenbuterol at a level roughly estimated at 0.15 ng/ml; which - according to the written decision is compatible with the consumption of contaminated meat in Mexico and China.
