Kornelia Ender
KORNELIA ENDER (born 25 October 1958 in Plauen
Plauen
, Saxony
Saxony
) is a former East German swimmer who at the 1976 Summer Olympics
1976 Summer Olympics
became the first woman swimmer to win four gold medals at a single Olympic Games, all in world record times. It was later proven that the East German team doctors had systematically administered steroids to their athletes (albeit without the athletes' knowledge). As she had exhibited symptoms of steroid use in 1976 (deep voice, overdeveloped body), strong suspicion was cast on the validity of Ender's accomplishments. Ender trained from a young age and won her first Olympic medals as a 13-year-old at the 1972 Olympics in Munich

Doping In East Germany
The GERMAN DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC (GDR), commonly known as EAST GERMANY (German: Deutsche Demokratische Republik or DDR) conducted a decades-long program of coercive administration and distribution of PERFORMANCE-ENHANCING DRUGS , such as testosterone and other anabolic steroids to its elite athletes for the purpose of bolstering the communist state 's image and prestige by winning medals in international championships (such as the Olympics), known officially as STATE PLAN 14.25. The drug regimens, given either with or without the knowledge of the athletes, resulted in victories in international competitions, including the Olympic Games . East Germany had been a pioneering state in doping, so much that it was considered to be the inventor of doping.
