Big Doping News *Miss The Broadcast? Here’s How To Watch The BBC In The US

Have drugs been instrumental to the success of the Nike Oregon Project?

LRC Everything You Want To Know About The BBC Nike Oregon Project Doping Documentary If You Didn’t See It The show had multiple anti-doping allegations against Alberto Salazar and Galen Rupp, and that the Nike lab advocated for or was aware of testosterone usage by Nike athletes.

*Shoot The Messenger: Alberto Salazar And Galen Rupp Issue Statements Saying They Believe in Clean Sport And Criticize The Journalism Of The “Reporters” Salazar’s response was especially cheeky as he referred to David Epstein and Mark Daly as “reporters.” ProPublica and the BBC are about as respected as it gets in the journalism world. David Epstein is definitely a reporter – his past work helped expose down A-Rod and Lance. *Message Board Poster Analyzes Statements Of Rupp And Salazar

Must Read: ProPublica Investigation Alleges Anti-Doping Violations By Alberto Salazar David Epstein, author of Sports Gene, has been working on this piece for a few years. A great read alleging possible anti-doping violations by Alberto Salazar and even Galen Rupp.  Epstein teamed up with BBC reporter Mark Daly to take a look inside the NOP. Steve Magness, Kara Goucher and Adam Goucher all speak on the record –  other former NOP athletes speak without using their names.  The BBC aired a one hour show on doping last night as well. Miss The Broadcast?
