(Beaverton, OR) -- Beaverton-based Nike is facing criticism over its Nike Oregon Project promoting long-distance running. Former teen running champion Mary Cain tells the New York Times she was constantly told to lose weight under the program and was told that she could take birth control to do so. She also said the project had no female coaches or nutritionists. On top of that, Cain says she became injured because of how she was trained and felt emotionally abused. The Nike Oregon Project was an initiative to promote long-distance running but shut down last month after coach Alberto Salazar was banned for violating doping rules. Cain set several records as part of the project between 2013 and 2016.
