(GlobeRunner) Athletics: One Trick Pony
When former IAAF President Lamine Diack was sentenced to four years in prison, two suspended, for corruption by a court in Paris last week, I was going to revisit the whole sorry saga; but, apart from the fact that the 87 years old Diack is never going to get banged up (he’s already been under house arrest for three years), there was little to add except that Diack’s son Papa Massata, holed up in Dakar, Senegal and refusing to budge, thus avoiding arrest, was, in my view the principal instigator of the corruption at the heart of darkness that was the IAAF that Seb Coe took over four years ago. But during my researches for a potential piece, I came across something I wrote ten years ago. It touches on many of the problems affecting international athletics back in 2010. Now, I don’t see myself as any sort of prophet, of doom or otherwise in these matters, but there seems to be a lot of stuff in the piece that is still germane. Enjoy! Or not, as the case might be…

  Quote of the Week  
Cross-Training - "If your primary purpose is to improve your running performance, cross-training does not help you much," says Hirofumi Tanaka, Ph.D, an exercise scientist at the Univeristy of Texas at Austin and author of a review of published studies on cross-training. "There is n important principle in exercise trainng called the 'specificity of training'---that is, exercise you perform in practices needs to be as close as possible to the actual competition." ~ From the May issue of Running Times.

The Russian Affair: The True Story of the Couple who Uncovered the Greatest Sporting Scandal The Russian Affair: The True Story of the Couple who Uncovered the Greatest Sporting Scandal
By Grigory Rodchenkov (Author)
Reads like a thriller, or even a spy novel...Walsh keeps you gripped' Rosamund Urwin, Sunday Times
It was the story that shocked the world: Russian athletics was revealed to be corrupt from top to bottom, with institutionalised doping used to help the nation's athletes win medals they did not deserve. But the full story of the couple who blew the whistle has never been told - until now.
When Russian anti-doping official Vitaly Stepanov met the young 800m athlete Yuliya Rusanova, for him it was love at first sight. Within two months, they were married. But there was a problem – in fact, there were lots of problems. She admitted she was doping and that everyone else was doping, and she let him know that she came from a dark place …
It could all have brought a very swift end to a very hasty marriage, but gradually the Stepanovs began to realise that whatever you did, the system in Russia was stacked against you. In the end, the only ones they could rely upon were each other. Fully aware of the risks they were taking, they decided to turn the tables on those who had manipulated them and cheated the sporting world.
The result of their investigative work sent shockwaves around the planet and led to Russia’s athletes being banned from world sport, while the Stepanovs themselves had to go into hiding. The Russian Affair is a gripping true-life drama that at times reads like a spy novel and at others like an epic love story. But, at the centre of it all, is a quietly determined couple who knew that if they stood together they could shine a light on a corrupt system and bring it crashing to the ground.
