Farah quizzed by USADA in London
26 Jul 2015 13:01
Mo Farah was questioned by a United States Anti-Doping Agency investigator on Saturday over the doping allegations surrounding his coach Alberto Salazar.
-
The double Olympic champion was questioned by American lawyer Bill Bock, the man who helped bring down Lance Armstrong, for five hours at the Grange Tower Bridge Hotel.
-
The meeting was routine and had been scheduled for some time.
-
The 32-year-old, one of a number of people the anti-doping authorities are talking to, has already said he is happy to co-operate with any investigation.
-
Farah has not been accused of any wrongdoing, but has been caught up in the doping storm which has engulfed Salazar, the head coach at the Nike Oregon Project in Portland, who has vehemently denied breaking anti-doping rules.
-
Farah's questioning by USADA came the day after he was cheered to the rafters on his return to the Olympic Stadium, winning over 3,000 metres at the Sainsbury's Anniversary Games, his first race in Britain since the doping scandal broke.
-
Farah will now head to his Pyrenean training base of Font Romeu to prepare for the defence of his world 5,000m and 10,000m titles in Beijing next month.
