Winstrol is the trade name and brand name for the anabolic steroid more formally and properly known as Stanozolol. It exists in both an oral and injectable format, and it sits on the third place pedestal among the top 3 anabolic steroids most widely used and most popular among bodybuilders and athletes. It is superseded only by Deca-Durabolin (Nandrolone Decanoate) in second place, and Dianabol (Methandrostenolone) in first place. Winstrol is probably most famous and well-known for its alleged use by Canadian Olympic sprinter Ben Johnson in the 1988 Seoul Summer Olympic games where he tested positive for it. However, its origins begin in 1959 when its details were first released in the medical and scientific community. It was Winthrop Laboratories in the UK that marketed Stanozolol on the prescription drug market, and Sterling in the USA ended up buying the patent in 1961 for the US market where it was branded as Winstrol.
