The 61-year-old Salazar, was recently signed up for a four-year suspension, because he is doping rule violated. To the American some athletes from the now-opgedoekte the Nike Oregon Project (NOP) of testosterone have to be administered, and he began to experiment according to the investigation by USADA using any other performance-enhancing drugs.

The Russian antidopingbureau RUSADA sent out in January, dopingdata that may be manipulated into it. The AIM is now to study.
