I did a research on Stanozolol, it's like a pill that acts like anabolic steriods without the injections.

Wow, quite a list. Shocking also. But it is a global problem. Greece is no exception. If one would make a list for Kazachstan, Belarus, USA or or or or or (name one of the big countries) the reply would be several pages long.

You never know, both Elaine Thompson and Dafne Schippers are capable of breaking that 10.49 mark at the 100m and 21.34 at the 200m.

You can add Athanasia Perra (Triple Jump) to the list of doped athletes. She was banned for 4 years (until 2021) after her 2009 sample was re-tested with new methods and it appears that she used a banned substance. Since she was already warned in 2002 by IAAF, the punishment was for 4 years instead of the customary 2 years.
