Renowned Olympian Mo Farah has finally decided to part ways with disgraced coach Alberto Salazar. The athlete however denied the role of doping allegations for this decision.

Salazar has been coaching the four-time Olympic champion at the Nike Oregon Project for the last six years. Farah has also been crowned world champion six times during this period. Farah, who will now be with Paula Radcliffe’s husband and former coach Gary Lough, said he missed his family and that is the only reason for the decision. The family of Farah is moving back to London. The long-distance runner said we want the kids to grow up in the United Kingdom. Farah also said it would therefore not be possible for him to continue his association with both Nike Oregon Project and Alberto that are based in the USA.

Farah specifically mentioned that he is not leaving the Nike Oregon Project and Alberto Salazar because of the doping allegations. Farah went on to add that he would have made a quicker decision if the doping allegations had to play any role. The Olympian added he has always been a firm believer in clean sport. Farah said he strongly believes that anyone who breaks the rules should be punished.

Salazar has been accused of being involved in using illegal doping methods. The coach was once accused of administering Testosterone gels and other banned substances to athletes. However, Farah has never been accused of any doping offences.

Alberto Salazar, chief coach at the Nike Oregon Project (NOP), recently denied reading all of the leaked US Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) report. The report alleged that Dr. Jeffrey Brown, who has worked with numerous NOP athletes, provided infusions of L-carnitine (a legal substance) over the legal limit of 50 ml in a period of six hours to Galen Rupp. The report also made claims about the use and misuse of prescription drugs by Salazar.

Galen Rupp, one of the most trustworthy athletes under Salazar, recently created history by winning the 2017 Chicago Marathon. Rupp became the first American to win the event in 15 years in 2:09:20. The Track & Field News magazine had recognized Rupp in 2014 as world’s top athlete in the 10,000 meters for 2014. The best American distance runner of his generation however has been stalked by suspicion of doping. The two-time Olympic medalist has consistently been one of the most tested athletes by United States Anti-Doping Agency. Rupp added the win-at-all-costs reputation of Salazar is incorrect. The athlete said the Oregon Project has always embraced science, but it is always within the WADA Code. Rupp and Salazar have been just as much athlete-coach, prodigy-mentor, and son-to-father. Both Rupp and Salazar have ever been charged with an anti-doping violation.

The disgraced coach has vehemently denied all allegations and went on to remark that the Oregon Project will never permit doping. Salazar also remarked all Oregon Project athletes are required to comply with the World Anti-Doping Agency Code and rules of the International Association of Athletics Federations.

The Major League Baseball may have come to an agreement with its players to test their blood for human growth hormone but the game will be expected to come to grips with its present testing before it touts itself as the leader in new drug testing, said BALCO founder Victor Conte.

Conte further remarked that MLB should be using a more sophisticated form of detecting testosterone or its HGH testing would not really make a difference as players often make use of small amounts of testosterone in conjunction with HGH.

“If MLB were to implement CIR testing, I believe they would possibly catch a significant number of players using testosterone,” Conte says.
