In mid-October, the Nike Oregon Project (NOP) was canceled. Previously, Alberto Salazar, founder and mastermind behind the highly effective running training situation because of the world's largest sports company, was banned for four years after a doping study; as does NOP physician Jeffrey Brown. For several years, Salazar had been sending out runners with strangely identical problems with the hormone expert: they all allegedly suffered from thyroid problems, which Dr. Brown then countered with hormone release.
It was just one of the abstruse set by the American Anti-Doping Agency Usada for the Nike project. Salazar's experimental understanding of medicine was also documented in huge carnitine infusions, which he tested on confidence. The alleged dramatic increase in performance that he recommended to Lance Armstrong, the fallen American bicycle hero, who wanted to be the triathlete at the time, he also referred them directly to long-time Nike CEO Mark Parker. The 65-year-old, himself a passionate runner, maintained a close relationship with Salazar. Parker resigned in October, shortly after the completion of the Oregon project. But officially, the company has not distanced itself from Salazar until today. On the contrary. With absurd interpretations, according to which the coach was even washed clean by the doping agent award during the verdict, Nike chained itself to him. And in Salazar's defense, the company has already invested millions.
