This May Be The USADA Report On Alberto Salazar And The Nike Oregon Project

FloTrack has obtained what appears to be the 278-page internal U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) report on Alberto Salazar, Dr. Jeffrey Brown, and the Nike Oregon Project that was recently reported on by the Times of London and New York Times, but not published. We posted the entirety of the document at the bottom of this article, with the exception of two instances of sensitive personal information that we redacted. To verify the authenticity of the document, we reached out to USADA, and spokesman Ryan Madden told FloTrack that USADA could not comment on the status of any anti-doping investigations.

The document, dated March 17, 2016, is allegedly an "interim" version of a report to the Texas Medical Board about Dr. Brown, a Houston-based endocrinologist who worked with Salazar and the Nike Oregon Project athletes.

In addition to previously reported information about L-carnitine infusions, the document contains:

-Speculation that Salazar rubbed testosterone into Galen Rupp during athletic massages
-Reports from two separate interviews with Salazar, one in which he appears to admit to testosterone use in his running career and another in which he denies it
-Emails showing the team used a supplement later believed to increase cancer risk
-Why USADA believes infusions received by Rupp, Dathan Ritzenhein, Steve Magness, and more violated anti-doping rules

You can read the full document below. We will be reporting more on its contents.

The Flaws In "Prefontaine" Are Too Big To Ignore

All this time at home has allowed me to fully lean into my inner track nerdiness and catch up on films that I couldn't get to in a busier time. Track movies are certainly a rarity in Hollywood as niche sports don’t typically do well at the box office, but this quarantine period and the relatively small number of movies about running means I could very well be fully caught up on the sport’s cinematic library by the time life returns to normal. My plan, for as long as I’m stuck at home, is to watch a track film each week that I’ve never seen previously and then review it for this site.

Which Round-Number Barriers Will Fall Next?

Track and field, like all sports, is hibernating at the moment, giving plenty of room for idle thoughts. The present situation is dire, but I’ve tried to periodically distract myself with what the running world will look like when the racing resumes. One concept that’s always been interesting to me is round number records. The most famous of which, the four-minute mile, is run with such regularity now that its significance is lessened with each passing decade. Instead, I’m looking at that next set of barriers that help usher in a new digit to an event.
