Mayer arrested

FORMER Austrian Nordic skiing coach Walter Mayer has been arrested on suspicion of selling doping substances, three years after triggering a major doping scandal at the 2006 Turin Olympics.

Vienna state prosecutor spokesman Walter Jarosch said Mayer was detained on Sunday in connection with an investigation into the illegal sale of EPO and other banned drugs. Mayer was banned from the Olympics through 2010 for his part in a blood-doping scandal at the Salt Lake City Games in 2002.
