The (new) Nike Oregon Project...

Alberto Salazar's training group of elite runners that is headquartered on the Nike campus, has moved out from beneath the Oregon Track Club umbrella and once again is calling itself the Oregon Project.

I suspected there had been some sort of shift because Salazar's runners have been competing in all-black singlets this year. Last year they wore the green, OTC singlets.

I had an e-mail exchange with Salazar yesterday. In it he wrote:

"My group only, my six athletes, will be recognized as (the) Oregon Project."

Those six would be Adam Goucher, Kara Goucher, Dathan Ritzenhein, Galen Rupp, Alan Webb and read on...
