    crummy allegations that have been on Letsrun forever, especially the TUE, thyroid and alleged micro dosing is concerned. To the posters on Letsrun every athletes has been or is on drugs. But BBC's Panorama is shit media although it thinks its a giant.
    Carefully timed to embarrass Mo on Sunday. Allegations only but then every |Turk, Russian, Kenyan to say the least has been alleged to be on drugs.
    Your leader always is supposed to ban people talking about alleged misuse of PEDS and I have not seen evidence of specific cheating by the athletes mentioned and subsequent bans. Looking forward to how far GH is going to allow such chat when no failure on tests is proved .

    He never failed a test so why are we talking about it. Try to imagine he is from another big country.!!

    I don't read LetsRun so I was unaware of this.

    As another poster has said(or something close to this), "everyone is innocent until they are not".

    As a result, I am going to enjoy all of the wonderful performances this year and if someone tests positive, I will regret that fact.

    Salazar's quote...
    No athlete within the Oregon Project uses a medication against the spirit of the sport
    ... is oddly parsed and a bit disconcerting.

    If an allegation has been around for a long time, such as bribery in FIFA, maybe there's a reason for it. And with that in mind, I'd like to thank the FBI and Sep Blatter for convenient timing to give perspective on any alleged corruption in T&F.
