David Jenkins

SPORT: Track and Field
DATE: 4/18/1987
COMPLEX SAYS: Olympic silver medalist David Jenkins once admitted to taking performance-enhancing drugs. Who would've thought that would only be the beginning of his long-winding, treacherous ride with the illegal drug? After his competitive years were past him, Jenkins went to Mexico and met laboratory owner Juan Javier Macklis. The two partnered together to manufacture steroids in Tijuana and smuggle them everywhere from Los Angeles to Miami. While the money was getting long (somewhere in the range of $100 to $300 million), everything was bound to come crashing down. US Customs and the FDA soon came after Jenkins, and he was eventually imprisoned for seven years starting in 1987.
