MADRID, Spain (AP) — Spain’s track federation has axed steeplechaser Angel Mullera from its London Olympic Games team while it considers disciplinary proceedings against him for alleged doping.

A federation statement yesterday gave no reason for the decision.

The federation said Sebastian Martos would replace Mullera.
