Mary Cain Wiki
Mary Cain was born on May 3, 1996, and from New York City, USA. She is a professional American middle-distance runner from Bronxville, New York and she was the 2014 World Junior Champion in the 3000-meter event.
In 2015, she left the Oregon Project and spoked about the pressure she said she felt there to become “thinner and thinner and thinner.” According to Good Morning America, she said “So many people looked at me at that time and thought that I was living the dream, and in certain ways, I thought I would be,” Cain said in an interview that aired Friday on.”
Later, she added .” But nobody cared about me as a person. I was a product and I didn’t know how to cope.” In 2019, the New York Times published a video op-ed from Cain in which she stated that the deterioration of her running performance was due to the poor coaching practices within the Nike Oregon Project.
Cain stated that Alberto Salazar and other coaches within the team had an insistence that she lose and maintain a certain weight, sometimes with the aid of banned substances, which ultimately resulted in physical and emotional distress. Cain lost her period for three years and her bones became very fragile, to the point where she broke five bones while in the Nike program.
Nike said on Friday it would investigate the “deeply troubling” allegations of emotional and physical abuse made by Mary Cain against its Oregon Project, a distance-running training program. In the video, she accused Salazar of shaming her in front of others on the team when she did not reach the required weight targets.
She said that her low weight caused her to miss her period for three years, leading to lower levels of estrogen and five broken bones.
