All Salazar ath­letes to face probe

The Daily Telegraph - Sport - - Racing - By Ben Rumsby

All ath­letes trained by Mo Farah’s dis­graced for­mer coach are to be in­ves­ti­gated by the World Anti-dop­ing Agency for po­ten­tial drug of­fences, its pres­i­dent has an­nounced.

Sir Craig Reedie con­firmed the move af­ter the In­ter­na­tional Olympic Com­mit­tee or­dered checks on whether those who worked with Al­berto Salazar had been prop­erly probed.

Salazar was found guilty of dop­ing vi­o­la­tions and banned for four years af­ter an in­ves­ti­ga­tion by the United States Anti-dop­ing Agency. He had al­ways de­nied any wrong­do­ing.

Farah, Bri­tain’s most dec­o­rated track-and-field ath­lete, worked with the Amer­i­can from 2011 to 2017. Usada did not pro­duce any ev­i­dence against the 36-year-old, who has never failed a drugs test and has al­ways de­nied break­ing any rules.
