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.

Asked about her rivalry with Shannon Rowbury, Simpson talks about how having to go up against Sally Kipyego in college made her a lot better.
Salazar explains why he wants his athletes to do an all-out peak twice a year rather than train through indoor with just one peak in outdoor.

Rowbury was very proud to take down Mary Slaney's 32-year old 1500 record, but disappointed only to finish 5th at Worlds.
Some free coaching advice from two of the best.
Rowbury: "In high school in the U.S., sportsmanship is so important and so emphasized, and pushing isn't allowed. People from different countries aren't necessarily taught the same views. I saw that first-hand in 2009 when I was tripped in the world championship heats. From the gun, an Ethiopian athlete elbowed me, then kicked my legs out from under me. I got up and she continued to elbow me. And in [Lausanne, Switzerland,] I ran the 800, and before the race, the woman I shared a lane with warned me, 'You no push,' then proceeded to push me all over the track. Honestly, it made me laugh. You just have to be really grounded and refuse to let anybody push you around."
40-year-old wonder Bernard Lagat was 3rd in the 5k. Nijel Amos ran 1:43.28 to beat Adam Kszczot, Mo Aman and Taoufik Makhloufi.

Simpson on Monaco: “I ran 3:57 and that’s incredible for me ... But I was fourth and I want to be on the podium. Just as I stepped off the track, I walked up to my coaches and said ‘just get me ready for Beijing.’”
“The 1500m race is contested often, so to have the record stand for 31 years just shows how strong it was. Mary Decker Slaney is a legend in our sport and I feel very proud to have placed myself amongst the best women in the history of American distance running.”
Rowbury talks about her rivalry with Jenny Simpson, medaling at worlds, training with NOP and her thoughts on the Turkish dopers who placed ahead of her at the 2012 Olympics.
