"No drug to run fast", so for running fast - better endurance, higher strength, lower body fat and less chance for being injured so you can train more doesn't help to run fast? Okok.
The first rule about doping. Is you don't talk about doping.
I completely agree with Kiprop here. 3:26 is fast, drugs or no drugs. If drugs were really so effective, then we'd see a lot more of these types of times.
A 3:26 1500 meter time is pretty dope.
A convicted doper agrees with Canova and Rekrunner.
Guy has gone from denial that he took EPO, to denial that it gave him any benefit.
Replies underneath are interesting. All mocking the idea that EPO doesn't work. And those are his fans.
Seems that ideas such as EPO not working, and Kenya not having a doping problem are only 'normal' on LetsRun.
Yeah, only we only ever saw them in the brief window of the full throttle EPO era...except for Kirprop, who got busted practically the very same month that random testing was introduced to Kenya....
If drugs don't help you to run fast I wonder why he was taking them?
The second rule about doping is that dopers always lie. So do their defenders, as we see on these threads.
I can at least appreciate that he puts his 1500m time in his twitter name.
He's not admitting he doped to run 3:26. He's saying, "If you think EPO will let you run 3:26, then take it, and let me see you do it." So, it's clear he's not confessing, but offering a challenge to his detractors by saying, "If doping makes running world class times easy, then why doesn't everyone do it?"
My answer would be, "Because they are."
"All the best runners are doping and I got 3:26 so I am the best runner with or without doping"
Your title is misleading because the way I read this he’s saying the exact opposite. I was just speaking to a Kenyan 1:02:00 half marathon runner right now and he’s telling me that many Kenyans were surreptitiously doped by some European managers when they went for treatment in Europe. Whether this is true or not is difficult to establish so that we should look at the big picture. of course, willingly or not does not absolve him of any infection but we need to get things into perspective. This Kenyan sincerely believes that Asbel always thought himself to be innocent of all charges.
Asbel seems to have a lot of bitterness and frustration and having served a 4 year ban it would be more productive for him to start building up as best he can to try to get back.
Glad you started a thread on this as I saw that over the weekend and was like, "What doest that mean?"
He's correct that not all humans can run 3:26 on EPO.
He's also incorrect that there is no such thing as a PED.
Kiprop cracks me up. On his twitter yesterday:
There's No Doping.
I'm confident because I didn't dope.
Kiprop wrote:In 2018 I WAS FALSELY ACCUSED OF DOPING.
At least there is some kind of logic. IF there is no doping, he didn't dope, and then he must have been falsely accused of doping.
Looks like he uses a special definition of the word "doping".
so by his own logic he should give back his 2008 Oly gold medal? its a scam.
what a doped up moran.
He is stating - 'doping does not exist'.
He's been saying for the last 4 years that he didn't dope.
Now we know what he meant.
There’s so many doped athletes that can’t even come close to what Kiprop ran that day in Monaco. Races still gives me goosebumps.
He's not wrong.
Kiprop is BACK BABY!!!
