well clearly I am wrong about Heike’s GDR days. However, I think any woman who gives birth while still competing you’d find it difficult to say they were doping. If the information I gathered is correct she doped from 17-21 years of age and then it was no more.
Her spying as a stasi member was not about doping and more about defections and anti-state activity.
She’s a cheat, but like so many of East Germans was she or was she not aware, they all used the vitamin excuse including the woman who called them out. Obviously she didn’t have the outward physiological changes many of her teammates had so she was far too young to be aware.
