All Salazar athletes to face probe
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.
