Zimbabwean top long distance runner Munyaradzi Jari has tested positive to a banned substance and could face a ban of not less than two years according to the anti doping rules.
Jari tested positive for Drostanolone (M1) which is on the World Anti Doping Agency banned list.
The seasoned runner was tested on 5 June 2022 in Botswana after winning the Diacore Gaborone International Marathon.
Jari has since been notified about his case and is on provisional suspension.
Some local athletes who have been found on the wrong side of anti doping includes footballer Devon Chafa who was suspended for six months in 2013 after testing positive for a banned substance and former Zimbabwe national cricket team captain Brendan Taylor who admitted breaching ICC anti-doping rules.
