    I have my doubts this is very investigatable even by law enforcement.

    There was never any documented evidence of Rupp taking anabolic steroids from Magness.

There was some information from Steve Magness on Rupp being trained by Salazer in high school and documented him taking anabolic steroids at age 16. Then there was Alan Webb coming to Salazar and the Nike Camp and suddenly leaving in less than two years.

    I feel Salazar was "milking the system" and went over the line with medical treatments for females (I wonder if the runners medical insurance claims were investigated for fraud for use of thyroid medication for hypothyroid disease?)

    What would Cerutty, Igloi, Lydiard, or Stamfl do if they were coaching in the 21st century?

    Best wishes to Mary and all the other runners that were misled and misused by their "coach" and "mentor"

    This kind of behavior is pretty common in Japan. Not just in track and field but in many other sports as well.

    Nozomi Takamatsu. (2014 Youth Olympic champion. She was 4th in the World Junior race that Cain won.)

    So what other Nike groups have coaching you think is abhorrent? In distance running the other big Nike group is the Bowerman group in Portland. He and Salazar have seemingly had an uneasy relationship.
