Mo may be set for move as UK Athletics prepare for Salazar split

UK Athletics is expected to part ways with embattled coach Alberto Salazar after they publish their full report into allegations against the American coach, who has served as a consultant to the organisation for a number of years.

Mo Farah is also expected to be advised by UKA to dump Salazar after the World Championships in Beijing, according to a report today in the Daily Mail.

UKA’s initial inquiry said it found no evidence of wrongdoing on the part of Farah (details of which are here), but today’s release suggests they have now uncovered something which will force them to end their professional relationship with Salazar.

Nineteen athletes have contacted the US Anti-Doping Agency to make claims about Salazar’s practices, which range from allegations of testosterone doping to illegal distribution of prescribed medications.

Salazar has denied all the allegations, and gave a thorough, detailed response to the claims in June, which can be read here.
