    Let the back peddling begin. Are you really going to throw the soviets out there like they wernt the same as the east Germans. Please Big they had to be the worst offenders. Kids left there homes to go and train for athletics, that didn't happen in the states and I am against it completely.

    They couldn't beat Soviet Union though.

    They were outnumbered.

    250,000,000 people in that system and they EG would have out medaled everybody combined. Especially in 72 and 76 when they had the best drugs and there were no tests.

    Nasty stuff all of the drug thing. Flo-Jo probably will hold the womens sprinting records forever.... but she was doing an incredible amount of growth hormone and maskable steroids. She died in her 30's as a result (what killed her has killed a LOT of bodybuilders). Was it worth it? I think at the time they were doing it, if you asked those athletes if they would give up 20-30 years of their lives to achieve what they were training for, almost all of them would say yes. Of course they change their minds when the reality hits..... but it is too late then.

    I am familiar with the mindset. I suspect if I had bodybuilding genetics, I'd be almost dead now. Back then powerlifting (for the lighter guys) and wrestling didn't lend itself for the steroids of the era (the chemistry is better now so they have drug enhancements for all sports), so the sports I was more genetically suited for didn't have the incentive to juice.
    I am 49, bald, ugly, and don't own a single cool thing. Kids like me though.

    They passed tests and medaled. Whatever they took or didn’t take, you have to give them credit. They still trained hard.

    Ugly, don’t kid yourself. In America kids go to boarding schools. Ever heard of Blair?

    They also went to school there. Every single one of those Russian boarding school wrestlers got a bachelor’s college degree.

    Irrelevant. Most of them went to colleges and lived there. College starts around 17-18. Soviet wrestlers went to boarding schools around 15-16.

    Until then they trained at home and were taken to boarding schools only if they showed promise.

    Big you are so full of shit your eyes are brown. College is not a boarding school for kids to become better athletees for their countries. College is a place you go as a young adult to further your education so you can become a viable member of society one day hopefully. It is completely different than a family sending there 8yr old daughter away to become the next great gymnist for the mother Russia.Dont try to fool yourself into thinking it is. I would be interested to know how many of those kids thought they had a choice on whether they went to be athletes or not.

    So what? Much better than working at McDonalds and having 3 kids by the age 18 like some American girls from poor neighborhoods do.
