What so many angry Rowbury fans do not seem to get is she is the ONLY USA female distance runner currently at this level that is trained by a coach under a doping investigation. Her teammate Galen Rupp is under investigation, NOP is under investigation. Her coach, Al Sal, is highly suspected, and by some in the inner circle known doper while he was a competitive runner. Her coach Al Sal coached a known convicted doper, Mary Decker Slaney. These are all documented facts. You all seem to hate facts yet love to accuse others where there are no known facts or documents to back up your hate and accusation of other athletes and coaches.
Now let's look at the other top coaches - Jerry Schumacher's group; Brooks-Hanson; Brooks-Beast; Drew Wartenburg; Mark Welcome, Joe Vigil, etc. None of them are under investigation for doping, none of their athletes are under investigation for doping, they have never coached a banned athlete, none of them have never been accused of doping as a competitive athlete. Yet, once again Rowbury is attached to all of this by being attached to Al Sal's group. The above of course is not a complete list of the top coaches, but surely you have to understand why Rowbury will never earn the respect or trust of many fans. She can't be trusted as long as she is in bed with Al Sal and the NOP. If she is clean, then why is she staying connected to a coach, athlete and team that is being investigated for doping? Surely, her sense of honor and integrity would cause her to part ways from this team unless she herself was benefiting from their cheating practices. That's just a statement of belief by many, and rightfully so. Rowbury will not ever be seen as a clean athlete by many as long as she remains with Salazar. It's her choice to put herself in a position of doubt, speculation, and even distain.
