Mo Farah Doctor Testifies On L-Carnitine Use

Britain's culture, media and sport committee headed by conservative MP Damian Collins held an oral evidence hearing to help their investigations into doping in athletics.

Much of the session centred around a performance enhancing substance given to Mo Farah before he ran the 2014 London marathon.

The substance, L-Carnitine, is legal if given in doses which don't exceed 50 MLS every six hours and the doctor who administered the substance via injection to Farah, said he only gave him 13.5 MLS.

Dr. John Rogers, UK Athletic's medical officer, said Farah's coach Alberto Salazer had appeared fully transparent when he spoke to him to ensure proper care was taken of Farah, a double Olympic middle-distance champion in both 2012 and 2016.
