    I wrote two books with the coach and have every reason to feel betrayed.

    Thanks for posting it, Conor. Just to be clear, that is the headline and sub-title for the article. In the article itself, Brant gives a more nuanced picture of AS. It is well worth reading.

    From the article ...

    " ... Rather than fume, however, I mostly felt bad for Salazar—according to the USADA report, a man who cynically cheated his competitors and jeopardized the health of the athletes in his care, aided and abetted by one of the most powerful corporations in the world. So why would I feel conflicted? A number of reasons, among them the fact that, by one reckoning, I hadn’t really been betrayed."

    Unfortunately, it's behind a subscription only firewall after the opening paragraph. :-(

    Never thought we'd see that in "our" sport. Death threats from...NOP athletes? Their parents or siblings? letsrun.com fanatics? NIKE-hired goons? Hardly think Joe Sixpack would do that, since he has never heard of Al Salazar.

    I suspect it was just trolls with no connections to NOP or Nike..... probably don't even like or follow track....

    This kind of crap comes up often in Twitter....the actor who played the husband in the now infamous Peloton ad had death threats....

    In early October, after years of investigation into Salazar's coaching practices, the U.S Anti-Doping Agency banned Salazar from coaching for four years after finding he had encouraged his athletes to use performance-enhancing drugs.
    Did you?

    In fact there is an explicit comment to the contrary.
