Description

For years, in the shadowy reaches of the world of sports, there were rumors that some of our nation’s greatest athletes were using steroids, human growth hormone, and other drugs to run faster, jump higher, and hit harder. But as track stars blazed their way to Olympic medals and sluggers brought fans back to baseball with stratospheric home runs, sports officials, the media, and fans looked past the rumors. Then, in December of 2004, San Francisco Chronicle reporters Mark Fainaru-Wada and Lance Williams broke the story of the Bay Area Laboratory Co-Operative, a tiny nutritional supplement company that according to sworn testimony was supplying elite athletes with banned drugs. Now, in Game of Shadows, the same reporters tell the complete story of BALCO and the investigation that has shaken the foundations of the sporting world.
