NYRR STATEMENT ON THE REMOVAL OF ALBERTO SALAZAR

FROM THE NYRR HALL OF FAME

 

New York, July 1, 2021 - As part of an internal review of the NYRR Hall of Fame selection process, it has been determined that Alberto Salazar will be removed. In examining members of the NYRR Hall of Fame, the organization takes into consideration inductees’ contributions, conduct and influence on the sport, as well as their ties to the organization’s mission and values. As part of this process, it has been decided that Salazar does not meet the organization’s ethical standards. The serious, credible statements of Salazar’s conduct of abuse and harassment of athletes as well as the investigation and ban for doping violations, necessitated a removal.
