World steeplechase champ detained in doping probe: "Steeplechase world champion Marta Dominguez has been arrested along with two coaches and doctor Eufemiano Fuentes in the latest Spanish police investigation into doping in sport, local news reports said.
The El Pais daily said on its website Thursday that the Central Operation Unit (UCO) of the Guardia Civil raided the homes of athletes, coaches and doctors earlier in the day in several cities such as Madrid and Las Palmas.
Citing sources close to the investigation, the report said the raids were based on an order by a Madrid court and that police and Spanish anti-doping authorities are co-operating in the probe named 'Operacion Galgo' (Operation Greyhound).
Police officials have so far not confirmed the probe which is the third against doping in the country - with Fuentes already at the centre of Operation Puerto in 2006.
El Pais and state radio RNE said Dominguez was detained along with her coach Cesar Perez, coach Manuel Pascua Piqueras and Fuentes. El Pais said that Dominguez' manager Jose Alonso Valero was arrested as well."
