Athletistic/ Others. The ex-head of the Moscow anti-doping laboratory, Grigory Rodchenkov, said that at the 1988 Summer Olympics in Seoul (South Korea), the USSR allegedly disguised a doping-fraud machine under the guise of an espresso machine.

According to Rodchenkov, at the 1988 Olympics, he was on the list of technicians who serviced this coffee machine.

In addition, Rodchenkov admitted that athletes from the USSR avoid passing positive doping tests. Immediately after the competition, the athletes drank a lot of beer in one gulp, then emptied their bladders directly into a sports suit. Thus, there was no trace of prohibited substances in the urine of the athletes.
