Olympic shot put champion Udo Beyer admits to doping - The Globe and Mail

Former Olympic shot put champion Udo Beyer has for the first time admitted doping, saying in a documentary that it was his personal decision and that he won the gold medal in 1976 in Montreal because he was “the best” and not because he doped.

Beyer competed for East Germany, which had a systematic doping program for its top athletes, many of whom have said they were not aware they were being given performance-enhancing substances.

Speaking in the film “The Lone Wolf” shown at the Berlin Film Festival this week, Beyer said he knew what was happening.

“I knew everything that was done with me. Things I did were my own decision. I gave myself the right to do it,” Bayer said in the film.

“There were things I refused and there were things I did. And there were no secret things in the tea,” the 57-year-old former athlete tells filmmaker Sandra Kaudelka, a former diver.
