    No, no, no. Don't worry at all. People will be reasonable and apply the rule in a reasonable manner, consistent with human behavior. What could go wrong?

    I don't think anything I've written has indicated that they were "kids" or "stupid". I think an intelligent, driven, well-intentioned adult athlete can be led astray by a coach, like Alberto Salazar...

    Not the one's that left him, failed under him, or ultimately decided against going with him. So, maybe there are some that were willing to cheat with him, but they probably would do that with any...

    It also wouldn't surprise me if it is completely true. Alberto Salazar (among other coaches like Trevor Graham before him) seems to have his success as a coach as his primary goal, not the success...

    Not sure what your point is. You seem to be refuting what Mary is saying about Alberto and Nike, and defending them. She was 17 and putting her trust in coaches and a system that was funding her. ...

    I don't think that it would be "expected" that anyone would stop in the middle of an approach run because the anthem unexpectedly began to play. That was impressive and humbling.

    I thought that was with blood doping in dutch cyclists in the '80s and not with EPO use under a physician's guidance. Regardless, I'm looking for evidence in scholarly articles or even good...

    If you're convinced that those in lanes 2/4/6/8 are slow enough as to never interact with the athletes in lanes 1/3/5/7, then they essentially won't have a chance to win. In that case just get rid...

    Covenient. Edwin Moses set the WR for the first time at the 1976 Olympics. Usain Bolt, David Rudisha, and Wade van Niekirk set WRs at major championships. Do those marks have credibility for you?

    The current 400h record was set after rounds at the Olympics in 1992. That's why I can't understand that.
