Some Of Paula’s Blood Values Come Out

3 Of Radcliffe’s Suspicious Blood Values Are Published By Sky News Under Headline “Blood Tests That Cleared Paula Radcliffe” Two of her OFF scores were 109, which Sky News says is below a 111.7 altitude training level. The other – 114 – was taken immediately after a half marathon and Sky News says WADA now considers tests taken within 2 hours after a competition as invalid because exertion can affect the values.

The Integrity Of The Sport Is At Stake – Mike Rossi Is A Marathon Cheat And Should Have Been DQed From The 2014 Lehigh Valley Marathon

rossfinish Lehigh Valley Got It Wrong: The Evidence Is Conclusive: Mike Rossi – The Viral Boston Marathon Dad – Is A Marathon Cheat And Should Never Have Been On The Starting Line In Boston In April, Mike Rossi gained international fame for his snarky response to a letter from his kids’ principal scolding him for taking them out of school for several days to watch Boston. A LetsRun.com investigation has revealed that Rossi’s principal was correct, the kids should never have been in Boston as the evidence is conclusive – their father didn’t legitimately qualify for the 2015 Boston Marathon. How confident are we that Rossi cut the course when he “ran” his 3:11:45 BQ qualifier at Lehigh Valley? Extremely. We’ll pay Mike Rossi $10,000 if he qualifies again in the next 12 months – and the qualifying time is 13+ minutes slower – 3:25.
