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 can add Pigi Devetzi to the above list as her doping verdict became official.She has been stripped of her 2007 World Championship and 2008 Olympic Games medals in the process.

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.

Bad news here for Ioannis Kyriazis
It is reported that he may have taken banned substance while competing in the United States. 
He is banned temporarily until the investigation has been completed. 
This could be a big blow for the future of Greek men's javelin throw.

He might get away with just a warning if it was in a supplement that he did not know about. Example is Baniotis in 2014. Otherwise he is looking at 2 years.

Apparently a Greek female athlete that won a medal at European Championships tested positive for a banned substance and is facing a 1 year ban from competition.

Depends which European championships they are talking about. If it is the senior championships from last year my bet is on Belibasaki or Kyriakopoulou.

Well he is serving a four year ban for his doping offense. He has 3 years left before he can compete again. I read an interview with him recently and claims that he is innocent and that he will return to competition after he serves his ban.
