    Nice list,
    Very informative. It is too bad Jim Thorpe got his medals taken away.

    Ben Johnson should’ve clearly been #1

    Let’s get to the heart of the matter and just put the East German Olympians of the 1970’s to early 1980’s as No. 1 on this list. Before the 1976 Olympic marathon, Frank Shorter was the clear favorite to win his second Olympic Gold Marathon in that event. So here comes along an East German marathoner name Waldemar Cierpinski who won not only the Olympic Marathon in 1976 at the Montreal, Canada Olympics, but also the United States boycotted Olmypics Games in the 1980 Olympics held in Moscow, Russia. Also East German swimmer Kornelia Ender who won various Gold Medals in the Olympics from 1972 to 1980. I believe that many if not all East German athletes who won medals in the Olympics at that time we’re stripped of them. Also the blood doping that was allowed at that time with the long distance runner Lasse Viren of Finland who won both the 5000 and 10,000 meter run at both the 1972 and 1976 Olympics as well as placing fifth in the Marathon in 1976. Lets at least say that the East German Women had a rather manly physique to them at that time

    How about the East German Olympic athletes of the 1970’s and early 1980’s who were stripped of their Olympic Medals because of their steroid use.

    Another one was Lasse Viren Of Finland who was a “blood doper” who won the the 5k and 10k at both the 1972 and 1976 Olympics and placed 5th at 1976 Marathon as well, but am not sure as to whether he was stripped of his medals
