Plaza overturns 10-year-old ban
Spaniard Daniel Plaza, the 1992 20km walk Olympic gold medallist, has won a case to clear his name of a drugs ban.

Spain's Supreme Court found in his favour after he took legal action over a two-year ban imposed by the Spanish Committee for Sporting Discipline.

Plaza tested positive for the steroid nandrolone after the 1996 Spanish championships but denied taking it.

He tested negative in further tests for a drug which normally takes three months to disappear from the system.
