1600 words on Salazar and the NOP doping investigation. Includes some thoughts from former Boston winners Greg Meyer, Bill Rodgers and Amby Burfoot who all defend Salazar to some extent.
Salazar said they have been doing daily mass with Fr. Patrick Conroy, the chaplain of the US House of Representatives who they flew out for the race.
John O'Sullivan writes that their "treatment of Gatlin is in stark contrast to the refusal to ask questions about Mo Farah [and Alberto Salazar.]
"It didn't go well over there. I'm not the type of person who gets depressed, but sometimes I cried and cried. There were times that I thought about quitting athletics."
Levins says he had a "pretty good" relationship with Salazar, although not as personal as he has with his former college coach Eric Houle. Levins said the doping allegations were tough to deal with, but weren't why he left the group and he has "the utmost faith" that his former teammates are clean.
The article by German publication Spiegel shares a lot of interesting details and direct quotes from Alberto Salazar's emails. Allegedly, Nike has been trying to "stonewall" USADA by making it very difficult to get Salazar's emails and restrict what could be used in a hearing. Also, both Galen Rupp and Matt Centrowitz had "suspicious" blood samples before Rio.

Ken Goe reports, "Salazar said Rupp would continue to compete in the 10,000 through 2017, but would concentrate on marathon training." Alberto says, "You can be effective in the 10,000 while doing marathon training. There is precedent for that. But we won't be doing all that training for a kick. And he won't be running the 5,000 anymore. That is gone."
Farah says he's only ever had one TUE (a drop when he collapsed in Park City, Utah in 2014) although he revealed he uses an inhaler for asthma which he was prescribed in 2009 and swapped to a different one after moving to Alberto Salazar.
Alberto Salazar might want to read this. Although he does a lot right, he might be holding himself back due to "tension in his chest and ribs" often associated with asthma.

Alberto Salazar says Rupp "would get killed at the end of the 10K" if he didn't improve his speed, but also said that Rupp is way better than himself, Dan Browne, and Mo Farah in the marathon.
Salazar: "I coached Dan Browne in the marathon, and I coached Mo Farah in one. Galen is so far ahead of all of us in every way. Galen is so much better than me."
