It also came days after it was reported Usada was seeking to retest Farah’s blood samples for the banned substance EPO, or erythropoietin, as part of its investigation. The 33-year-old, who vehemently denies any wrongdoing, declined to comment last night over the involvement of the FBI in Usada’s inquiry, whether he had been spoken to by agents, or whether he would co-operate if asked to do so.


The FBI! :eek:


Mo wont be running in the USA again it would appear!!!

The only reason the FBI would be involved is because Nike ( who bankroll Salazar's team ) has been a difficult target for USADA - Though I remain uncomfortable with the FBI's involvement in sporting matters, especially those that have a tenuous link to the USA.

Salazar and the Nike Project have plenty of US links.

The Mo involvement is almost a sidebar at this point.

Yep. Nike seem to have done all they can to block investigations.
Good article here if anyone hasn't seen it (sorry if it's already been posted in this thread):

'American anti-doping investigators believe that a Nike-sponsored team of elite runners coached by Alberto Salazar may be engaged in systematic deception. Internal emails suggest that the sportswear company has sought to hinder the investigation'.

SPIEGEL presented Salazar's emails to the professor for comment. "This trainer is acting as an alchemist, a drug procurer and hormone adulterer to these athletes," he says. "He should be banned immediately; there is no reason for delay."
