East Germans started a national steroid program in the mid 70s and it's believed to have been rather pervasive throughout the NFL during the same time period. I find it hard to believe it didn't spread to other sports. Starting late 60's everyone was hopped up on black beauties all the time. There's obviously a benefit to an inexhaustible source of energy.
