In July 2011 he sets a new African record with a total of 8302 points at the Ratingen Combined Event meeting in Germany. He set three personal records in the competition: 100 m (10.61 s), long jump (7.94 m) and discus throw (40.34 m). He finished tenth at the 2011 Athletics World Championships in Daegu with a total of 8158 points, including two personal bests: 13.56 s in the 110 m hurdles and 4.90 m in the pole vault. He was eliminated from the decathlon in the 2011 All-Africa Games in Maputo after two false starts at the first event (100 m). The games were held two weeks after the world championships and he said that this was not enough time to recover. He entered the individual pole vault event, however, and won with a personal best of 5.00 m.

He set bests in the 100 metres, shot put and javelin throw to lead from start to finish and collect 8332 points. However, his doping sample at the competition came back positive for the banned steroid Stanozolol. Bourrada was disqualified from the event and given a two-year ban from athletics.
