The "Oregon Project" mentioned is the "Nike Oregon Project," Nike's program to promote distance running in the U.S. by building a team of elite long distance runners. Money quote:

 

Now, as the run-up to the 2016 Olympics begins in earnest, Magness and other former Oregon Project employees and athletes—among them some of the most respected in track— are speaking out. In interviews with ProPublica and the BBC, they allege that Salazar, the most powerful coach in U.S. track, is violating the medical and anti-doping rules of the sport.

 

"He is sort of a win-at-all-costs person and it's hurting the sport," says Kara Goucher, the nation's most prominent female distance runner. She left the Oregon Project in 2011, after seven years.
