All athletes who coached based on IOC president Thomas Bach should be investigated by the World Anti-Doping Agency.
Salazar, the former coach of Britains Mo Farah, was this week found guilty of doping offenses after a four-year evaluation by the US Anti-Doping Agency (Usada).
61, the choice contrary to Salazar, came after a court battle.
Bach stated the instance isvery worrying and raises serious concerns.
Speaking at a press conference on Thursday, Bach explained:Were confident that Wada will appear in to this case very carefully and will follow up on questions which remain after this record.
The IOC may write a letter to Wada in this respect.
On what he will be requesting Wada, Bach added:To see how many athletes have been investigated. Have all the athletes been investigated whove been training in this centre?
Does the report address the entire length of the existence of this undertaking or just part of it?
Can any Olympic results directly or indirectly be affected?
We heard from the report which the athletes wouldnt have known what happened to them this is an important factor when looking at sanctions but disqualification is required whether the athlete understands or not.
We are very confident that Wada is considering this anyway so we are awaiting the advice from Wada in this respect.
In a declaration, Wada said:Wada notes that the conclusions passed in the cases of Alberto Salazar and Jeffrey Brown in relation for their involvement in the Nike Oregon Project. As always, Wada will examine all facets of this case.
We shall await the IOCs correspondence however we cant comment publicly until weve reviewed the situation in full.
Salazar, whos stated he will appeal the judgement, conducts on the Nike Oregon Project – house into four-time Olympic winner Farah from 2011.
Even the 36-year-old Farah, also a six-time world champion, said:I am relieved that Usada has, following four years, finished their investigation into Alberto Salazar.
I left that the Nike Oregon Project in 2017 but, as Ive always stated, I dont have any tolerance for anybody who breaks the rules or crosses a line. I am glad theres been a conclusion.
The Briton has always denied breaking any rules and has never failed a drugs test.
Allegations from Salazar surfaced in 2015, but UK Athletics cleared Farah to remain together with the Nike Oregon Project.
