Doping control officers detected oxandrolone in Najafi’s sample during national games in March, and Zahir was found to have misused methandienone during Iran’s championship games in February. Simultaneous detection of testosterone, norandrosterone, and trenbolone was reported from Faridi Asad’s sample.
