    True. But my question is why didnt she address it - and her reason(s) for wanting to return after four years - in her NYT op-ed.
    There are no strings on me

    Outside of that Nike quote, are there any other sources out confirming that she was seeking to join the NOP again?

    And even if true, her request may have included the condition that she won't be trained by Salazar or his assistants.

    If she did ask to return, her overwhelming desire to return to running greatness could have 'coerced' her to want to return, even with all the abuse inherent. But where were the parents in this?
    The whole sordid affair is disheartening on all fronts, and thank heaven her suicidal thoughts weren't manifested.

    Are there any examples of athletes who have come back to the sport after the length of break that Cain has had?

    In similar events wasn't Mary Decker out for about 4 years in the 1970s before coming back to prominence?

    Justin Gatlin is a prime example. Out 4 years.
