Farah Pulls A Viren!

Viren didn't have much of a Marathon career after Montreal, did he? I predict that Farah's Tokyo 10k will go rather like Viren's in Moscow. Discus.

    Yes, Viren came 5th in the 10km in Moscow. Major factor in his success in Montreal 76 was that 29 African nations boycotted the games. That did not happen in 1980, and the Ethiopians dominated. I don’t think that you can compare the two performances by Viren, based on that.

    Also, in Moscow, only 80 nations out of 142 IOC members showed up, as many boycotted, including Canada and the USA. There were a lot of factors to consider in success from games to games.

    "Admitted blood doper"

    Blood doping did not become illegal until 1986. Nowadays the biological passport is the anti doping strategy that is in place. They use simultaneous blood and urine sampling to test for it. The blood storage bags are the evidence to detect blood doping, as they leave plasticizers in the urine.
    It took some time to develop a test for blood doping. In cycling they will not let you race because of the fear of the possibility of strokes, heart attacks, and a few other beauties. At the 2002 World Road Cycling Championships in Hamilton, Ont., Canada’s top rider, Genevieve Jensen, was not allowed to ride. The year before she had won two medals at the Junior Worlds. It kind of pissed me off, as I especially wanted to see her ride.
    As my son coaches internationally in xcountry skiing, this is of considerable interest to me.
    Did Viren get away with one ? Depends on your perspective, I guess.
