BARBARA KRAUSE / by Molly Schiot

Krause, like many of the East German athletes of the time, was doped by her caches under instruction from the STASI. At the time of the '76 Olympics in Montreal Krause was forced off the East German swimming team because "team doctors had miscalculated her dose of drugs and worried she might test positive at the Games"  Her both children were born with deformed feet, which she later attributed to her use of steroids.
