Don Ramos, a long-time Colorado Springs resident, is the oldest athlete ever sanctioned by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency. He was busted this summer for steroid use. He’s 80.

Ramos said Tuesday an ESPN reporter and film crew have visited him in Colorado Springs, filmed him working out and talked to him about his life story.  Ramos said ESPN officials have told him the network plans to broadcast a feature about him in November.
