Comment: Stripped!, reads the banner of a campaign to have all GDR results cancelled, red background, tabloid typeface, exclamation mark and all. It might also have read ‘Abused Twice!” for victims now victims all over again. The truth of the GDR story should be acknowledged not rammed in the faces of victims with the same vigour as it took Kipke and his cronies to ram needles in their butts; we should not wipe out history – it happened; what we can do is honour those robbed of their rightful place and adjust the books with every footnote necessary to make sport an honest place for future generations while treating victims on all sides with the dignity and recognition that they deserve
