Rarely has a television report shocked the sports world as much as the ARD documentary "Top-Secret Doping: How Russia Makes its Winners". Several key witnesses and numerous audio and video documents revealed details of fraudulent practices in Russia and portrayed an actual doping system in which athletes, trainers, doctors, associations and even the Russian anti-doping agency seem to be involved. For months, international investigators have been looking into the research presented in the documentary.

How are our protagonists from back then faring today? What outcome have their courageous statements had? What consequences have been drawn? And what kind of progress has been made on the clarification demanded by the International Association of Athletics Federations? Pertinent questions about a world renowned crime.

We have once again been looking for clues and have discovered new information regarding widespread doping in the international athletics world. The investigations extend far beyond Russia and show how athletes, doctors and associations whitewash, downplay and cover things up. Internal documents suggest that the doping problem in the principal Olympic sport could be much greater than was ever considered possible.
