The sample tested positive, and his Beijing Olympic medal was stripped with a ban backdated to 03 May 2009 until 02 May 2011.

WORLD FIRST

FROM MOROCCO TO BAHRAIN
Finding it difficult to step up from junior to senior level racing, he took the advice of a friend and left Morocco for Bahrain in 2001. He gained citizenship in Bahrain, joined the armed forces and made a breakthrough in his running by reducing his 1500m personal best by nine seconds. "I moved to Bahrain under my own economic motivation. There was no approach from the [Bahrain] government, it was my personal private choice which only came after the advice my friend gave me. But I am a Moroccan, as I was born a Moroccan." (IAAF 07 Jul 2004; IAAF Handbook 2005)
