    International sport was largely dominated by communist East Germany in the 1970s and 80s. But it has since transpired that the state systematically doped its athletes and their success was a sham.Many former trainers have consistently denied any wrongdoing,even though scores of athletes have been left with serious health problems.

They all currently coach Germany's top track-and-field stars,and they've been told their jobs are safe,despite their confession.
