Alberto Salazar's Nike Oregon Project should be shut down says key whistle-blower Kara Goucher
A key whistle-blower in the case which saw coach Alberto Salazar banned for four years for doping violations says the Nike Oregon Project he ran should be shut down. "It [NOP] has to go," American Kara Goucher, who trained under Salazar between 2004 and 2011, told BBC Sport. Usada chief Travis Tygart has praised Goucher and nine other NOP athletes who helped provide information during his long investigation, and has said Salazar treated them like "Laboratory animals" with the treatments they were being given. Nike has also said they will support Salazar's appeal and are paying Salazar and Dr Brown's legal bills. Goucher said it was a "Relief" that Salazar had been banned and that she could now "Move forward".
