Surya Prasad Sharma of India has been banned for two years after testing positive for an anabolic steroid.

FINA says Sharma had traces of stanozolol in a sample given at a competition in Trivadrum, India.

India’s national anti—doping agency imposed a two—year ban which expires in November 2013.

Sharma’s case is among a series of doping suspensions involving steroids handed down in recent months to Indian athletes across several Olympic sports.
