Bulgaria's Sevdalin Michev, who won the silver medal at the European weightlifting championship in men's 56 kg category, is now the new European champion after Turkish weightlifting champion Halil Mutlu was punished for a doping offence.

The International Weightlifting Federation (IWF) suspended Turkish weightlifting champion Halil Mutlu from all international events until April 20, 2007, Turkish media reports. The IWF informed Turkish authorities on Monday on its decision.
