If a great coach like Lydiard had committed doping violations I am sure we would view him rather differently - and the accomplishments of his athletes. I also doubt that we would be persuaded by the impartiality of his shoe manufacturer in coming to his defence. A brand above all protects itself.
They were "doping offences" yea but not the kind of doping offences people think about when they hear the word. He DID NOT GIVE ATHLETES DRUGS so this whole thing is a farce
So if he was breaking the doping rules - and it was no mere technicality that earned a 4-year ban - who benefited? No one? That's a little hard to believe. I don't think anyone would have described Salazar as ineffectual.
