RE: Why does letstrun hate NOP
I don't know about Mo Farah, but there's a huge difference between athletes from the US and athletes from Africa. The US is either the medal leader or in second place at every Olympics, and it's the #1 or #2 economy in the world. How much pride do you think it brings to the average American for a track and field athlete to win another medal? Not too much.

The Africans come from much more meagre circumstances and so they are much more proud of their accomplishments. Ethiopia, for instance, has NEVER won an Olympic medal outside of running. In addition to pride, the civic investments that they bring back to their countries (the Ethiopian business ventures are well known, but even things like running water...) mean they have a lot more on the line than the Americans, and of course it's also a way out of poverty for many of them.

If the NOP guys dope, it's more for their personal glory and maybe so they can afford a bigger house. Screw them.
