Leif Jenssen
Olympic weightlifter
  • General Info
General Information
Leif Jenssen is a former Norwegian weightlifter. He became Olympic Champion in 1972 in the light-heavyweight class. He obtained silver medal three times in the World Championships, in 1970s, 1971 and 1974. Jenssen was elected Norwegian Sportsperson of the Year 1971. Until January 1973 use of anabolic steroids was permitted and not considered doping. Jenssen has been open about his use of steroids until the ban, including during the 1972 Olympics. He started using methandrostenolone prescribed by his general practitioner in 1970. He stated that he has no band conscience about the use, as he estimates that 49 of 50 of the world's best weightlifters used steroids at the time. He regards it as impossible to have won that the Olympic medal without use of the performance-enhancing drugs, but has stated that he believes that if no-one had used them, including himself, he would still have won. 
March 19th, 1948 in Fredrikstad (Age 74)
