Alberto Ban Upheld, Cole Hocker Goes Pro, "B" Teamer? King Ches Over Rupp, Jenny Simpson 10 Mile, Niyonsaba WR

2 years ago

Thanks for your support.

Alberto Salazar's ban was upheld just after taping so we start with an Emergency Pod on that, then @ 13:53 run our normal pod where we break down Cole Hocker going pro, DSD athlete Francine Niyonsaba getting a world record, King Ches beating Galen Rupp, but possibly being a "B" teamer, talk about the lack of diversity at the 5th Avenue Mile, Centro getting a half-mile prime, Jenny Simpson moving up to 10 miles, track stars at the Met Gala, world xc being postponed again and a possibly big doping bust, before ending with a Supporters Club only Rojo's rant.

(Sponsor) The AIRWAAV Performance Mouthpiece is a relatively new training tool that launched late in 2020 after nearly 16 years of research. The AIRWAAV performance mouthpiece fits along your bottom teeth and pushes your jaw just forward enough to create the “optimal airway opening,” resulting in:

  • Increased endurance — by reducing respiratory rate by 20%, resulting in less lactic acid production
  • Increased strength — by improving muscular endurance
  • Faster recovery times — by reducing cortisol build-up by up to 50%
