Is The NOP Doping Investigation Wrapping Up Soon?
“There’s a lot of things over the last 20 years that have been a part of my running and career, and in a lot of ways it’s not over. The fight that Kara and I fight and the battles against Alberto [Salazar] and Nike, I think that’s not necessarily something that people realize how intense that is and how intense that can be and how consuming it is. But you’re fighting for something that you believe and your integrity is on the line and you want to do right by the everybody, by the community and the running world in general …
“It’s just one of those things. It’s frustrating that you’re fighting for so long and there’s still no resolution – or at least not 100% resolution at this point. I think it’s coming very, very soon, but until there is that ultimate resolution, you’re just kind of waiting. And that in itself is a drain. It’s a drag, it’s frustrating.
“We won’t stop fighting because you know what? At some point, the athletes deserve to be treated right, they deserve to be on an equal playing field. If you don’t clean it up, if you don’t get rid of this corruption that is happening, you don’t get rid of the people that are around IAAF and people at the top of Nike Running, as soon as we can get rid of those people and get fresh, good, honorable people in there with good intentions, the sport can come back and actually be viewed as legitimate.”
