OTTAWA (AP) -- Greco-Roman wrestler Colin Daynes has been banned two years for a doping violation at the 2011 Canadian qualification trials.

The Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sports said Monday anabolic steroids and a diuretic were detected in a urine sample from the in-competition doping control on Dec. 18. Also present was an estrogen receptor modulator, which is generally used to mitigate the effects of steroid use.

The 37-year-old Daynes acknowledged the violation. The punishment is backdated to the competition date and will last Dec. 18, 2013.

Daynes won the 163-pound final at the tournament in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Opponent Connor Malloy will be credited with the victory.
