So we are assuming? Surely if he was doped up he'd have won?? I think in the main all sports people at some level are on enhancing drugs, be it GAA or Lacrosse unfortunately.. me personally I'll wait till they are caught

That's assuming the people who defeated him aren't. Ethiopia, where farah trains,  has very dubious testing. I prefer to think bolt and even froome not up to their neck in it but farah has a lot of dubious things going on.

I'm not saying he is and backed it up with most successful sports people are regardless of the sport.... my beef is with the ones giving off while praising other sports men (soccer, hurling, football, golf ) thinking they are clean?

At what point do wr think this 'Winner' is clean?

The detractors have built a list of 21 unanswered questions on farah. He has suspect allegiances with salazar and aden and then some though.

The reality is that endurance sports can have huge gains made in them by pushing "science" boundaries so it will always lend itself to big question marks. Power and speed sports have the steroids aspect too. There are a lot of very probing journalists who jump all over athletes when they make suspect moves. They have been alloverfarah for along timewith a lotof questions.

I do see what you are saying but some have more questions on them than others with farah being one of them.

I get it, Farah is running with a black cloud.. but flip sake!! Ones complaining about Jamaica testing being the worst and doubting them but with the brits being better at testing surely something must come out?

He doesn't live in britain. I get what you get. I just have reservations here. I prefer not to think like that but when your coach writes a paper stating the way to beat the africans is to dope then you are leaving yourself very open to doubters.

Paula Radcliffe sniggering when the presenter asked her about Bolt pulling up made her look good!

Got the Dublin Ironman 70.3 finished today. Tough going but that should set me up nicely for the Dublin marathon

We got lucky alright. Glad to get finished before the rain started. The debate is on now whether to go to the next level or not

Huge step up all the same! toying with it for about a year now, takes a huge commitment training wise to get to that level... 2 close friends have competed in 6 different Ironman competitions around Europe. They were mainly cyclists and had to improve their running and swimming to be able to get over the line... Years ago you could have finished regardless of the time but now you have a time limit for each part, if you don't complete it they stop you before you take up the next stage
