GENEVA(AP) Canadian bobsledder Serge Despres' 20-month doping ban has been extended to two years.

The Canadian Center for Ethics in Sport said Wednesday the decision by the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) followed an appeal by Despres and the World Anti-Doping Agency.

CAS has yet to publish the decision on its Web site.

Despres tested positive for nandrolone during an out-of-competition test on Aug. 9, 2007 in Calgary. Despres and WADA both said the drug likely came from a tainted supplement.
