Oregon Track Club coach Mark Rowland spoke at length Friday about his team's preparations for USAs, the depth of mid d running in the US vs Great Britain and the importance of having a star like Mo Aman in his group. On Aman he said the quote above, "It’s not so much the 2 hours we see them but the 22 that we don’t. So that has to be improved and they need to regard themselves better and become more professional."
On tactics at USAs: "It’s clearly important. Everybody now with the depth and the standard being so good, these guys aren’t stupid, everybody wants to be in the same place at the right time and it is who can force that at that key moment (that wins). "
On the NOP doping scandal: "We’re all sitting back and waiting to see what happens next. It’s up to the authorities to investigate and Alberto to defend himself and appropriate actions will be taken with other people. We (the Oregon Track Club) are a different team, we get on with our own thing. We’re focused on what we need to do and we’re here to compete and do the best of our ability to try and get on the team for the World Championships."
