Azerbaijan at the 2004 Summer Paralympics

Azerbaijan competed at the 2004 Summer Paralympics in Athens, Greece. Two powerlifters failed drug tests for steroids in initial drug tests on 18 September 2004 and were banned for life from the Paralympics having both failed tests in previous championships. Sara Abbasova competed in the women's -82.5 kg category and had her first violation at the 2001 powerlifting championships in Hungary.[1] Gunduz Ismayilov who had set a world record and won a gold medal in Men's -90 kg competition at the 2000 Summer Paralympics was stripped of it and had his record nullified after testing positive for nandrolone.[2]
