Steven Ungerleider on "Faust's Gold"

February 24, 2002

Sports psychologist Steven Ungerleider is the author of the harrowing “Faust’s Gold: Inside the East German Doping Machine.”  He tells Steve Paulson that massive abuse of steroids and hormones was routine - even mandatory - among the athletes of the GDR, which also conspired to hide the doping results. Today, many of the athletes suffer drug-induced diseases and reproductive difficulties, including birth defects in their children.
