Published August 6, 2013
CRITICAL RESPONSE: In Munich, Boris Herrmann wrote the report was "significantly cut from more than 800 pages," and the released version "excluded a number of eyewitness accounts as well as the names of influential politicians." The released version, which is dated April 30 and titled final report, "has a total of 117 pages whereas the version obtained by Süddeutsche Zeitung, which is a couple months older and also titled final report, has 804 pages" (SÜDDEUTSCHE ZEITUNG, 8/5). German Olympic Sports Association (DOSB) President Thomas Bach said in a statement, "This a good day for the fight against doping. We welcome the publication of the study which I have initiated with DOSB. We have appointed an independent commission with a former judge of the constitutional court, Udo Steiner, as chairperson. This commission will now evaluate the report and give recommendations with regard to the tasks as well as about the future improvements of the fight against doping" (DOSB).
