I always read these threads, but I never comment. I feel compelled to now though. I agree with whistleblower101 - I just have to say that this all smacks of a witch hunt to me. Kara Goucher offers zero evidence, and her testimony is very weak. I'm prepared to admit I"m wrong if more evidence comes to light - NOP may be dopers - but I don't see any proof here, and she and her husband come across as sour runners who've had their day, and resent it. They don't offer any evidence of drug use, and nothing has been corroborated or 'seen' ever. I can't understand what the 'story' is. Where is the evidence? No-one has seen any doping directly - it is all just innuendo and 'circumstantial' evidence at best at the moment.
BTW, that asthma test (one of Goucher's friends complained about Salazar setting her up with so she could get some asthma drugs) should be taken off the list of 'infractions' - isn't it standard to do some exercise before being tested for exercise-induced asthma? Can someone enlighten me here?
I feel embarrassed for Kara.
Wearing that shirt "runners against dopers". Did she actually accuse NOP
of doping? Or was it a message for Gaitlin.
Complaining that this week has been hard on her. Well that is what you signed yourself up for when you went to BBC. Did she think it would make her life easier no. I hope she realised it was hard on NOP too, they still got the job done.
The problem is if we are to believe Kara that NOP are dopers, she has to come forward and admit she doped too. Let's be honest her best years were in the project and she was one of the favourites. Would she really be missing out on the good stuff?
Gouchers are coming across as sour grapes.
