In our Friday 15 Supporters Club only podcast we breakdown the overnight breaking news that Australian 800m star Peter Bol's "A" sample had tested positive for EPO.

We discuss the case, ponder if it could be similar to the Bernard Lagat situation, and then right after we record, Bol's coach Justin Rinaldi posted an update on the LetsRun.com forums.

We then preview the USA Cross Country Champions where the junior races are loaded with Leo and Lex Young both entered along with Irene Riggs. Can any of them do what Dathan Ritzenhein did as a junior? Weini Kelati headlines the senior races.

We have a voicemail of the week, text of the week and at the end pay our respects to Bob Hersh and discuss how much track and field changed during his lifetime.
