U.S. Olympic runner Molly Huddle calls for lifetime bans on dopers, by Kelyn Soong, for The Washington Post

Molly Huddle is one of America’s best distance runners. Her five U.S. championships this fall hints at her domination of the road racing scene. This is a nice interview on her comments on giving lifetime bans for doping cheats.

RunBlogRun concurs, although we are not sure it is legal in U.S. or Europe.


U.S. Olympic runner Molly Huddle calls for lifetime bans on dopers

Last week, the World Anti-Doping Agency released a report alleging Russia had a “systemic,” “deep-rooted” and “state-sponsored” doping program involving their track and field athletes. In turn, several professional runners reacted with a lack of a surprise and called for governing bodies to do more to get rid of the corruption that has long plagued the sport.

After Russia was given a provisional suspension by the International Association of Athletics Federation in response to the report, which could lead to its athletes being barred from the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, American Olympian Molly Huddle said she believes those caught doping should be sanctioned with lifetime bans.
