Spanish women’s hockey team under drug suspicion

Spain’s women’s hockey team is in trouble after two of its players tested positive for banned substances.

“The International Hockey Federation (FIH) has notified us about [the positive tests],” Spanish Hockey Federation president Marti Colomer told sports daily AS on Wednesday.

“We believe the positives were for a powerful stimulant, an amphetamine or something like that.”

Spain beat Azerbaijan 3-2 and earned a spot in the Beijing Olympics. Spanish officials are saying they are victims of foul play by Azerbaijan. If Spain is disqualified from competing Azerbaijan will take their spot in the Olympics.
