Obviously the Alberto Salazar doping ban the subsequent reactions from the many athletes in Doha has been one of the bigger stories. One of the athletes most outspoken against the NOP has been American Jenny Simpson.
She even went as far to say she didn't have much sympathy for any athlete in the NOP even if they had nothing to do with doping, saying, "I’m not going to be the judge and jury of who is cheating but if you’re closely affiliated with somebody who is serving a four-year ban and someone points a finger at you and says ‘maybe you’re cheating,’ I don’t feel sorry for you. Maybe you are cheating. I don’t know.”
Well a source told me that he found that quite ironic as he said that Jenny Simpson herself was a former patient of Dr. Brown - the doctor who was banned by USADA.
So I had Jonathan Gault ask Simpson if she was ever a patient of Dr. Brown. She refused to deny and said she didn't want to get into medical issues.
Full interview here. I haven't had time to listen to it yet so if someone could listen to it and tell everyone else at what point that part is, I'd appreciate it Update: People say it occurs at the 5:08 mark
