ESPN's 30 For 30 Tracks Down a Dark Olympic Legacy

ESPN's 30 For 30

Long before the cases of Lance Armstrong, Barry Bonds and Marion Jones engendered public indifference about performance-enhancing drugs, steroids were a dirty little secret of the sports world. Suspicions were prevalent in Olympic circles, but rarely discussed above a whisper.
