    I was surprised this didn't go more into his experience with NOP!
    What was his training like there? What were the similarities and differences when he went pro? What was it like training with those various Olympic medalists?
    Levins even seemed to try going there himself when he talked about getting injured (and was told to run through it??), and said there was some tension for a time, but the interview didn't really expand on that.
    Great chat in general but those several years of his career seemed like a major hole in the interview!

    That was likely intentional. I am not sure Cam would see this as an appropriate venue to hash out what he didn't like about the program. He is a professional .. MIcheal does an exceptionally good job and asks really great questions that I am certain he puts plenty of thought into. I respect them for not digging into it.

    Thanks for the compliments, but this was Rob Watson's show! I personally was pretty surprised at how much Cam opened up about his time with NOP...you're right in the Cam usually plays his cards pretty close. I thought Robbie D did a great job on this interview!

    Here we go again!!!

    Suddenly the recent 62:15 HM means nothing?

    He did 1500/5000 in 3:50/13:58 within 100mins, and I think he will be happy with this glorified training session.

    - Obviously it was intentional. That is kind of the issue.

    - This is a "pro sport," right? Would you have Scottie Pippen on a radio show and not ask him about his time playing with Michael Jordan and coached by Phil Knight?

    - You are assuming that I wanted Cam to hash out what he didn't like about NOP. I am sure there were many positive aspects.

    - It actually seemed like Cam DID feel comfortable hashing out getting injured under Salazar's supervision, saying he was even told to train through injury pain to "be tough." He totally went there. So I'm surprised there were no questions on what it was like to train with Rupp, benefits of the program, all that.

    - This was on the Rob Watson show. Since you think the host was called Michael, maybe you are commenting without even listening to it?

    - Like I said, "great chat"!

    On a related note, what has Cam been up to lately? Did I miss something since his 1500/5000 races a while back? I'm worried.
