2 UBC football players face sanctions for positive doping tests


The sanction means fourth-year T-Bird Stavros Katsantonis will not be eligible to play Canadian university football again until 2023. However, he could play in the Canadian Football League as early as next year because its penalty for a positive doping test is a one-year ban, compared to a four-year ban by the Canadian university sports system, called USPORTS. Both Katsantonis and fellow UBC defensive back Malcom Lee gave positive urine samples during an out-of-competition test conducted on March 22, 2019. If it comes back positive as well, Lee will also face a one-year ban from the CFL. This program was not affiliated with UBC Football," said Lepine.
