The drama of Marta Domínguez, from legend of Spanish sport to watchman from a train station

The news that jumped a few months ago about the prison request for Arantxa Sánchez Vicario overwhelmed the Spanish population. The tennis player was a myth for the history of the sport of our country and, with that information, many could not avoid feeling that the past of her was somehow stained by the accusation. However, this is not the only story of a Fall Fall Star. Back there is Marta Domínguez (45), the woman who came to the top of Spanish athletics.

Domínguez managed to be two-time European champion at 5,000 meters from Munich 2002 and Gothenburg 2006 and was second in the World EDMONTON 2001 and Paris 2003. However, all that ended in 2010, when his name came out in the framework of the operation Greyhound, an investigation of the civil guard related to doping. Since then, her's career began to fall into disgrace and, according to Esdiario, she today she works as a safety guard from the Palencia bird station, the native land of her.

The judge in charge of the Galgo case excressed the athlete of the doping charges, supplied recipes without permission and fiscal offense, but it made clear his suspicions on Dominguez had been consumer of prohibited substances in sports, "what would result in a penalty In this area, but never a criminal imputation. "

That's how it went. In 2013, the International Athletics Federation opened by doping, this time by irregularities with its biological passport, and in 2015 the Court of Sports Arbitration (TAS) recognized its doping, withdrawing its gold in the Berlin World and Silver The Europeans of Barcelona.

The sport turned his back on him, but he was not the only one. Domínguez had entered in 2003 in the Popular Party of Palencia and in 2003 she left elected councilor of the City of City Council Sports Area. In 2011 she even arrived at Senator. By jumping all the scandal, the PP eliminated her from her lists.

In an interview for the 12th of Cope's 12th, the athlete insisted that it had never been docped and that probably entering the PP was what hurt her. "My punishment has been a political issue," said Domínguez.

Since then, few data has been had over it. She is known that she tried to oppose the local police, both at the basic scale and an inspector. The results would not be satisfactory, since Esdiario also reports that before the pandemic she worked as a monitoring in a Palencia gymnasium, which she had to close because of the Covid. Again, she saw himself in the obligation to reconvert her life.
