Nike Oregon Project

Numerous studies[2] have shown that living at altitude causes the athlete to develop more red blood cells, increasing athletic performance. In addition to this, special software is used to monitor electrodes attached to the athletes, determining what condition they are in and how far or fast they can train. They use underwater and low gravity treadmills. They also have a collaboration with Colorado Altitude Training (CAT) for their hypoxic training equipment.[3]Nike's Oregon Project was created by Nike Vice President Thomas E. Clarke after reportedly being disgusted at the lackluster performance of American athletes in long distance events since the early 1980s when Oregon Project coach Alberto Salazar cheap supreme hats won the New York City Marathon three consecutive times from 1980 1982.

When the project first began, Salazar chose some of the top runners of the time that he believed had great potential. Eventually, however, he realized that since these athletes were older, their bad habits had already been engrained and this led Salazar to instead take on younger athletes. This led to his taking on of Matthew Centrowitz ( gold medal 1500 Rio ), Galen Rupp and Adam and Kara Goucher. These athletes went on to be more successful because Salazar was able to work with them from a younger age.[4]List of current athletes, according to their website:[5]

The health of coach and project director Alberto Salazar has been in question since he suffered a heart attack at Nike's Beaverton campus on June 30, 2007. From that time, Salazar has been implanted with a defibrillator, and he has planned to take a more limited role with Nike Oregon Project. In June 2008, Salazar chose his tentative successor as head of the Oregon Project, hiring cross country coach Jerry Schumacher away from the University of Wisconsin Madison.[7] In turn, Schumacher has brought his top distance protg, Matt Tegenkamp, with him to join the program along with Chris Solinsky and UW Madison Freshman turned pro Evan Jager.[8]

The Agency's Senior Managing Director, Larry Bowers said, "The argument for altitude rooms is that they make up for those athletes that can't live high.

The Oregon Project has also been criticized by college track coaches for recruiting Galen Rupp directly out of high school to go live at the Oregon house and forgo attending University of Oregon for his first year.[1]

On May 19, 2017, The New York Times cheap supreme hoodie wrote an article about a US Anti Doping Agency report that claimed Salazar worked with athletes to increase their L carnitine levels, likely in violation of anti doping rules.[10]
