Episode Summary

Doping for Gold
Doping for Gold examines the secret steroid program instituted by the former East Germany in the 1970s and 80s. For two decades the government subjected its athletes to large doses of anabolic steroids in order to improve the country's performance in international sporting events. This was often done without the athletes' knowledge. The program follows up with many athletes whose lives were destroyed by the drugs.moreless
