"First, lets get a few of the more vague and easily misinterpreted accusations out of the way. The label of testosterone medication - that's this (presents a tube of testoboost, or whatever it was). Please note that testoboost is not a banned product. The vials referenced are this (puts a bunch of vials of allergy med labeled #1 or #2). The HYPODERMIC! needles to administer the allergy med (drops bag of 25+ needles), the thyroid medication (shows thyroid med, along with a doctor's report showing it is mildly necessary). The androgel is mine, here is my doctor's RX (shows prescription).
As to the statements made that I suggested Kara Goucher take Cytomel, that's true. I was wrong to do that. As to the statements made that I suggest Lauren get and take the highest dose of asthma medication available to her. That is true. At the time, it seemed like she had a bad case of exercise-induced-asthma and I thought she would benefit from a stronger prescription. I was wrong. I should have left that up to her doctor. As to suggesting she see a doctor about her thyroid - based on the symptoms she described to me, I thought it was worth exploring. I don't think that was wrong.
A lot of discussion has been made about the NOP operating in a gray area. I won't agree or disagree with that. I will say that Galen Rupp is not and never has doped or cheated. Neither have any of the other athletes.
As to the most damning accusation that I applied testosterone to my son...(dramatic silence!)...that is true. I realize now how paranoid this may seem, but I've heard too many stories from the 80's that athlete A tried to sabotage athlete B...this isn't an excuse, it's just the way I rationalized using my son as a guinea pig. It was a terrible thing to do and I was wrong.
As of today I am stepping down from the Nike Oregon Project. I will seek forgiveness from my son and my family, and I will retreat into the wilderness and repent."
