"the East German marathoner who beat shorter in 76 has not been proven guilty."
His name was mentioned in East German files from the doping program complete with his doping schedule. It is proven.
I believe Slaney tested positive twice. Someone should look that up. She was cleared once then tested positive again. I am not sure.
It is not my place to "out" the runner who went to the doctor with Malmo. I really wish folks would out themselves. It doesn't make them bad people but outing themselves would draw attention to how deep the problem might be. I guess they don't want to taint their accomplishments but if enough people fess up to what they did, then we might get a handle on the problem. I can completely understand the dilemma folks at the high levels of sport face when convinced that their competition is doping and perhaps if we found out how many athletes resorted to it, we could figure out how to stop it. Someone on the boards once argued, and I second it, that there are probably plenty of people who dope who do so only because they cannot be sure their conpetition is clean and would prefer a clean sport if they could be sure everyone was clean. There are certainly dopers who genuinely wish there were strict testing procedures so they could stop doping without worrying about losing ground to dirty competitors.
I applaud Malmo for his self-outing in this regard on various forums (I think the first time was years ago on an old defunct tnf-list). Whatever other faults folks might accuse him of, integrity doesn't appear to be one of them. I can understand why he wouldn't want to out his friends, as, surprise, surprise, folks can be good people and use drugs but most people don't see the world that way.
