In this week’s podcast, we digest the stunning news of Asbel Kiprop’s positive test for EPO. Was he scammed? Did he cheat? Is it time to go after his agent? Is his explanation convincing? We debate all of the above. After that, we turn our attention to some good news: Phil Healy’s scorching hot 100m times at the Tón Le Gaoithe meeting in Waterford last weekend, asking what they might mean for the summer ahead. We round up the best of the Irish performances at home and abroad before hearing from an Irish marathoner who’s packing his bags for Flagstaff, Arizona. Stephen Scullion, fresh from his 2:15:55 run at the London Marathon last month, explains why he feels the need to train far from home to reach the next level, and in a candid interview, he opens up on the challenge of making it work financially while chasing the running dream. To close, we look ahead to the Shanghai Diamond League on Saturday, running the rule over the best races, telling you what to expect when you’re expecting…a good meeting.
