UK Athletics clears Farah to continue working with Salazar

LONDON (AP) British track and field's governing body says there is ''no reason to be concerned'' about Mo Farah or other British athletes working with American coach Alberto Salazar.

UK Athletics launched an independent inquiry following media allegations that Salazar was involved with doping some of his athletes at the Oregon Project training center.

UK Athletics announced in July it found ''no evidence of any impropriety'' by Farah, the Olympic and world champion at 5,000 and 10,000 meters.

On Friday, the body said it ''found no reason to be concerned about the engagement of other British athletes and coaches with the Oregon Project.''

UK Athletics said ''coaching and support for Mo Farah will remain the focus of our engagement with the Oregon Project.''

The U.S. Anti-Doping Agency is conducting its own investigation into allegations involving Salazar's training program.
