    Not having kept up at all with all this, the write up is pretty devastating. One of the reasons for my losing interest in TF for a couple of decades, was suspected drug users, putting up "wonderful" performances and running off with many medals in championships. My late mother, who had no interest in following sports, ridiculed my interest in my favorite sport by calling it Trash and Field.

    Good for Hassan and Klosterhalfen. Not sure what other athletes competing in Doha are coached by him.

    That is indeed "Juicy News"!

    Given it's taken so long I'd just assumed this had been swept under the carpet by USADA & USATF.

    Other NOP athletes in Doha are Clayton Murphy, Donovan Brazier (both in tomorrow's 800m final!), Craig Engels, Yomif Kejelcha & Jessica Hull. Maybe some of them are coached by Pete Julian instead though?

    Powell, why is it "Good for Hassan and Klosterhalfen"??

    I think Pete is an assistant? I don't know if you can be coached by Pete and not coached by Alberto, even if maybe some athletes ended up working more with Pete.

    Will be interesting to see what Nike does with the team.

    Almost feel bad for the athletes... but not that bad, sorry.

    The existence of this investigation has been public for YEARS. All of the athletes knew about it and knew this was a risk.

    I will give his athletes the benefit of the doubt, I'm not automatically assuming they are all dirty.

    How generous you are, any athlete who joined NOP knew what they knew. I will think about it when watching the 800m tonight and Hassan in a couple of days

    For a program that was felled by 'minor' issues there were quite a few whistleblowers...and probably more we haven't heard about....

    I can't recall any other program with similar complaints....
