LAUSANNE, Switzerland (AP) -- 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 that expires in November 2013.
Sharma is the latest in a series of Indian athletes in several Olympic sports who have been suspended in recent months for using steroids.
