Author/narrator Kara Goucher reveals the appalling nature of Nike's Oregon Project and its coach, Alberto Salazar. Discontinued in 2019, the elite program was rife with cheating, mental and sexual abuse, and sexism. At first, Goucher's voice is joyful as recounts how she came to be a top runner and was chosen to participate in the Oregon Project. Then you hear her angst and frustration as it all goes wrong. Goucher audibly works through her horror as Salazar assaulted her on a plane and during a massage, her disbelief as she attempted to explain it all away, and, finally, her reckoning with the abuse she was experiencing. It's a plainspoken, authentic performance of an important sports exposé. A.B. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2023]
