SUSPENDED: Steeplechaser Angel Mullera
SUSPENDED: Steeplechaser Angel Mullera

THE national Spanish sport council has suspended its second Olympic steeplechaser in as many months.

Angel Mullera has been suspended for two years for doping, after a five-year legal tussle.

The 31-year-old first came under investigation in 2011 after testing positive for banned substances. However a legal case in 2012 saw him reinstated to Spain’s Olympic team by the Court of Arbitration for Sport.

That decision has now been overturned and Mullera has been stripped of a number of medals, including a European bronze.

In December, fellow steeplechaser Marta Dominguez had her European silver medal stripped for doping.
