Alberto Salazar in Doping Scandal

https://twitter.com/JCalvertST/statu...87702531706880

Big story about to break alleging Salazar was giving his top athletes (including Mo) prescription drugs even when not medically required to boost athletics performances.

From the article:

Hopefully this is the start of the castle crumbling.

Was all this not in the panorama doc a few years ago?

These are new allegations, particularly the prescription drug part.

Can't read linked article fully, but original doc had plenty of stuff about using prescription medication under Therapeutic Use Exemption status.

From the article (The Sunday Times will have it tomorrow):

"USADA believes the L-carnitine infusions given by intravenous drip to six top American runners training with Salazar "almost certainly" broke anti-doping rules. L-carnitine is not a banned substance for athletes but infusions of more than 50ml in the space of six hours are prohibited."

Worrding is non-conclusive really, the times front page has a lot of "almost Certainly" and "potentially" and the health angle tells me that there is nothing of concrete evidence from the USADA report if these are the biggest quotes they could pull from what I assume is a huge document.

The prescription drugs is not new, Kara Goucher came out that time about Cytomel as have many athletes with "overactive thyroids" in NOP and athletics, Alberto used to be called Albuterol Salazar back in the 80's and Jeffrey Brown is known to meet athletes "prescription needs" for years, Carl Lewis was a patient of his. The one major thing I can spot in that article is the dose to time on infusions and nothing will probably come of it as how do they prove it, they don't even test for L-Carnitine as its not banned. Everything so far is a rehash of 2015 and the report was published in March 2016, nothing has happened a year after

USADA tried to unsuccessfully depose Dr. Brown 4 months after the report was published. The judge ruled that USADA lacked evidence and were on a "fishing expedition to see if they can find some kind of a problem"

If they couldn't fry Brown, I don't think they'll get anywhere with NOP.

'I am a clean athlete who has never broken the rules in regards to substances, methods or dosages'.

Well, if the allegations are true then you have Mo! If not, then you still certainly bent the rules as far as you could.

Stupid thing to say...

Mo maybe should think about disassociating himself from Salazar. His honesty and cleanness will be automatically questioned, and to many idiots he'll be labelled a PED user by association.

Are the allegations suggesting that these drugs being prescribed and administered are banned PEDs?

I think its more idiotic to not ask questions if the person who transformed his career is shown to be behaving outside the rules.

Hence my point. Maybe disassociate yourself from Salazar.

Anyway, no matter what there will always be idiots labelling clean athletes as cheats.

I read the links and articles. More horsesh1t.. if there is actual cheating then go and expose it....this incessant BS and innuendo and speculation and he said she said. Wake up, fellas. It's garbage.
