Doha Worlds Recap, INEOS 1:59 and Chicago Marathon (Rupp vs Farah) Preview, Alberto Salazar is Still Banned

4 months ago

What a week in the running world.

The 2019 World Track and Field Champs are in the books and what a meet it was. We start by recapping the athletics action in Doha with our winners and losers from Qatar. Then we turn to the Alberto Salazar ban and discus the Mark Parker email and other strange things we've heard. Then it's onto the Bank of America Chicago Marathon where two of Alberto Salazar's former finest, Mo Farah and Galen Rupp will square off. We pause for some praise for Sara Hall, before turning to Eliud Kipchoge INEOS 1:59 attempt.
