Rafael Nadal wants athletes implicated in Operation Puerto named — News.com.au
Spanish tennis champion Rafael Nadal this week called for suspected clients of blood doping doctor Eufemiano Fuentes, the man at the center of the Operación Puerto investigation, to be named.
“What is happening in Spain, I don’t understand it,” he told the L’Equipe. “I don’t understand why Dr. Fuentes is not giving names. And I don’t understand why the judge has not asked him to do so.
“I don’t understand why we never get to the bottom of these things. We need to clean everything up. I believe this doctor has worked with foreign athletes but because he is Spanish it is Spanish sport that is being prejudiced.
“As an athlete that hurts me. Because of people like [Lance] Armstrong, we all have a dubious image.”
