How do you wind up with a 12-year doping ban?
-Get caught at an in-competition test
-Say you were prescribed EPO by a doctor

This week on The Rundown we discuss anti-doping violations involving a world champion sprinter and an elite marathoner. We also talk about the trial of former IAAF president Lamine Diack. Diack is charged with corruption and money-laundering related to the Russian state-sponsored doping scandal. We share the story of Noor Abukaram who successfully advocated for Senate Bill 288, which allows religious apparel when participating in extracurricular activities. Plus, we recount even more exciting solo results and upcoming socially distanced races!
