Podcast: Alberto Banned, Cole Hocker Pro, Jenny Simpson 10 Mile, “B” Teamer (?!) King Ches Over Rupp

September 16, 2021

We start with an emergency pod on Alberto Salazar being officially banned by CAS.

Then at 13:53 in our regular pod we discuss Cole Hocker going pro, DSD athlete Francine Niyonsaba getting a world record, King Ches beating Galen Rupp, but possibly being a “B” teamer, discuss the lack of diversity at the 5th Avenue Mile, Centro getting a half-mile prime, Jenny Simpson moving up to 10 miles, track stars at the Met Gala, world xc being postponed again and a possibly big doping bust, before ending with a Supporters Club only Rojo’s rant.

(Sponsor) The AIRWAAV Performance Mouthpiece is a relatively new training tool that launched late in 2020 after nearly 16 years of research. The AIRWAAV performance mouthpiece fits along your bottom teeth and pushes your jaw just forward enough to create the “optimal airway opening,” resulting in:

  • Increased endurance — by reducing respiratory rate by 20%, resulting in less lactic acid production
  • Increased strength — by improving muscular endurance
  • Faster recovery times — by reducing cortisol build-up by up to 50%
