Russian Doping Whistleblowers Yuliya and Vitaly Stepanov are our special guests to talk about their decision to turn on the Russian doping machine. Plus John Capriotti is out at Nike and we look at the final Diamond League meets.
New court filings reveal that when Nike agreed to match the New Balance's offer to Boris Berian they then sent him a contract that included reduction clauses whereas the New Balance offer sheet did not mention them. Nike justified this by saying the clauses are "standard in track and field endorsement contracts."
At USAs, it was stated that people had been threatened at the meet but the details were missing - until now. LetsRun.com has obtained a police report stating that Nike's John Capriotti threatened the life of the Brooks Beasts' Danny Mackey. Witnesses interviewed by LetsRun.com support Mackey's claim.
