PORTLAND (USA): Sifan Hassan’s agent Jos Hermens has insisted that she is in “safe and clean hands,” informs de Volkskrant. “I have known Salazar since 1979. I’m sure nothing will happen to Hassan. Nike would not allow it. I am convinced that Sifan is in good, safe and clean hands,” said Hermens. Hassan said she only takes supplements from her Dutch-based doctor Peter Vergouwen and she would have stayed with her previous coach Honore Hoedt if he didn’t have so many other commitments. She adds she is planning to race indoors next winter.
RunBlogRun opines: Sifan Hassan has not been happy with her results the past few years. She has moved to Alberto Salazar to improve her game. It also seems that she wanted a coach who could provide some focus on her performances.
