        Dave Steen was obviously the real Olympic champ that year. One Canuck goes down in flames and another gets burned by .....omg...East Germans.

          Wouldn't a clean East German be actual news?

            Big news since there probably were none.

              Not competing internationally there wouldn't have been.

                  A good book to read on the East German sports system is "The Miracle Machine" by Doug Gilbert. Not a lot of details on the doping but its mentioned in there.

                      The same could probably be said about the high-enders from all nations in that era.

                        "in that era" yes, and only in that era, .. the sport was clean in the previous and subsequent eras.

                            Crucial to remember that '72 was the first Olympics where steroids were specifically on the banned list.

                              I can remember open discussions in the magazine in 1971 or so about whether or not to take steroids...do they help or not...
