Since the doping scandal was uncovered, several athletes have come forward to express their anger over being unwittingly drugged. In 2000, 32 former athletes filed a suit against the perpetrators of the doping program. And in 2004, former Olympic swimmer Karen König filed a suit against the German Olympic Committee for the drugging, aiming to use the money in the suit for therapy or medical needs. (In addition to the hormonal changes brought on by the steroids, many athletes suffer from exertion-related injuries, and internal damage to their organs from the drugs.)
