Quote Of The Day

– David Epstein talking on this week’s House of Run podcast about the Alberto Salazar doping investigation. When asked if he thought it was likely that Salazar would end up being sanctioned, he said, “not necessarily.” Talking about other things going on in track, Epstein raved about Evan Jager‘s current form: “It looks to me just from watching him run right now … it seems to me that we are looking at an athlete who is operating at a level that very few operate on ever in their sport and I think that’s really, really special … It seems to me that he’s going to threaten the World Record.”
