Winstrol (Stanozolol) is an Anabolic Steroid that was derived from Testosterone in 1962 by Winthrop Labs . The original purpose of this steroid was to help treat people suffering from anemia, it is also often used for veterinary purposes. This high anabolic, low androgenic steroid does not bind to the androgen receptor. For this reason Winstrol is considered a weak steroid in terms of its muscle building properties, it does however cause great increases in strength. Stanozolol is also a popular steroid for females due to its low androgenic properties it makes it a safer choice as side effects such as voice deepening and facial hair are a lower risk when compared to steroids such as Dianabol . This doesn’t mean females should use Winstrol as irreversible masculine side effects are still a risk.
The organizers of the Los Angeles games had refused to provide the IOC doping authorities with a safe prior to the start of the games. Due to a lack of security, medical records were subsequently stolen.  A 1994 letter from IOC Medical Commission chair Alexandre de Mérode claimed that Tony Daly, a member of the Los Angeles organizing committee had destroyed the records.  Dick Pound later wrote of his frustration that the organizing committee had removed evidence before it could be acted on by the IOC. Pound also claimed that IOC President Juan Antonio Samaranch and Primo Nebiolo , President of the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) had conspired to delay the announcement of positive tests so that the games could pass without controversy.
