Aziz Zakari of Ghana in Stockholm 2005The
IAAF has banned the Ghanaian male athlete, Aziz Zakari for two years.

Zakari was provisionally suspended by the athletics governing body on July 11, 2006 following an adverse analytical finding for the prohibited substance, Stanozolol (S1. Anabolic Agents) in his system after a routine doping test.

The test was conducted In-Competition (IC) on April 29, 2006 at the IAAF Grand Prix Meeting in Dakar, Senegal. IAAF spokesman Nick Davies said that analysis of Zakari's backup "B" sample confirmed the original positive finding.

Under IAAF rules the minimum sanction for a first violation for Stanozolol is ineligibility for 2 years.

Zakari has a career best time of 9.99 seconds in the 100 metres.
