Gonzalez dropped by Spain
Jovino Gonzalez
Canoeist Jovino Gonzalez has tested positive for banned substance EPO and been dropped from Spain's Olympic team.

"Gonzalez tested positive for EPO in a surprise test before the Games," said a Spanish Sports Council spokesman.

"He's waived a 'B' test and from now on our Olympic Committee will take appropriate measures," added Spain's Olympic chief Jose Maria Echevarria.

Gonzalez finished sixth in the 500m kayak at the 2000 Sydney Olympics and also competed at the Atlanta Games.
