Nike has been hit with another damning op-ed, highlighting the obstacles female athletes have faced through training with the company.

This one targets Nike’s Oregon Project, coached by Alberto Salazar, previously the best track team in the world.

“I joined Nike because I wanted to be the best female athlete ever. Instead I was emotionally and physically abused by a system designed by Alberto [Salazar] and endorsed by Nike,” Mary Cain said in an op-ed in The New York Times.
