An Embarrassing Day 1 For Alberto Salazar
“[Grunewald’s] still going up against [Nike, Salazar, and Hasay] right now. … Once the jury upheld the decision, [USATF] released the results. They told us everything was over, and we were about ready to head out. Now it seems like the Nike guys are hovering around, trying to keep the committee there.”
“It was like a volcano that was just building up to erupt, and we saw the complete eruption and the meltdown. To be perfectly honest, it was just bad for the sport, the way the whole thing was conducted.”
– Coaches Dennis Barker and Lee Troop talking about controversies involving Alberto Salazar after both the women’s and men’s 3k at a crazy first day 1 of USAs as reported by Jon Gugala on RunBlogRun. The women’s 3k still doesn’t have a winner after a protest was filed by Salazar, who after the men’s 3k had to be physically prevented from going after fellow Nike coach Jerry Schumacher.
