East german doping regime

In 1991 Brigitte Berendonk and Werner Franke, two opponents of the doping, published several theses which had been drafted former researchers in the GDR doping products which were at the Military Medical Academy Bad Saarow. Based on this work, in their book (translated from German as 'Doping Documents") they were able to reconstruct the practice of doping as it was organized by the State on many great athletes from the GDR, including Marita Koch and Heike Drechsler , who have denied the allegations. Brigitte Berendonk survived a 1993 lawsuit where Drechsler accused her of lying. The lawsuit essentially validates the book. [ improper synthesis? ] [26] [27]

Icarus ends on an ambiguous note. Rodchenkov is under federal witness protection (and Fogel says he has not spoken with him since). And while WADA and many of its national satellites voiced solid support to ban Russia entirely from the Rio Olympics and this winter’s Games in Pyeongchang, the International Olympic Committee effectively punted the issue to its member federations, which ultimately let almost 300 Russian athletes compete in Rio.  (You can improve your own fitness the natural way with  Bicycling 's  Maximum Overload for Cyclists  training plan. )
