Andreas Krieger is one freak story. This person used to be a girl athlete but after taking steroids and other hormone injections to improve her athletic performance, turned into a man. Though It would not be fair to say though that he/she had control over her destiny because the communists ran the mass sports factories behind the wall.
Andreas Krieger, born as Heidi Krieger, was a former East German shot-putter, who competed as a woman in the East German athletics team. Like many prominent East German sportspeople at the time, Krieger was systematically doped with anabolic steroids.
