BBC Documentary Examines Doping Allegations Against Alberto Salazar and the Nike Oregon Project

The big news in the running world yesterday was the release of a documentary and several associated articles alleging doping among members of the Nike Oregon Project. I just finished watching the documentary on YouTube and thought I’d share it here. Below also are several links to articles about the allegations. It will be interesting to watch this play out, and I give credit to Steve Magness and the Gouchers for speaking out.

  1. Armstrong, and the recent thought to be clean Africa runners, show that everyone at the top of their field should be held suspect, esp. if dominant or way outside the norm: Paula R, and the Venus’. It is really sad. ):
