Grit Breuer, the former European 400m champion who is eligible to run again in August after a three-year drugs ban, plans to compete at next year's Atlanta Olympics. The 22-year-old German was banned for three years in August 1993, along with Katrin Krabbe and Manuela Derr, after admitting taking clenbuterol. Also, the former Olympic discus champion, Jurgen Schult, said yesterday that Breuer and her coach, Thomas Springstein, would switch from the Neubrandenburg club to Schult's club, Schwerin. "Breuer is getting only a small amount of money and Springstein is getting nothing," Schult said. "They have changed clubs because we are the only club who would accept Springstein as her coach."
