It's time for the prizes.
5th place goes to the LRC tech department for doing all the necessary R&D to nail every part of the cheating. Lots of work and no medal, but that's the way tech life is. You do the work, the bosses get the credit.
4th place was more difficult to settle on. The obvious candidate was the LRC trolling department. They are the de facto LRC bosses and decide what should be done (by screaming and insulting), evaluate every result/non-result (by screaming and insulting) and in general make the world go round (by screaming and insulting). However, this time there was also an outstanding individual troll who deserved 4th place, namely Fake Laz. So 4th place gets to be shared between these two and thus goes to "Fake Laz and the Letsrun trolls".
Bronze Medal goes to Markus for starting the whole thing and taking tons of flak and insults from a bunch of cheaters and their group of retarded Facebook friends. He also appeared to be something as unique as a smart, not self-aggrandizing and friendly ultra runner. Very rare indeed.
Silver Medal goes to Laz and the Hippies. Somebody gotta do the grunt work, and they did it. The LRC trolls had a tough job getting them out of their hammocks but in the end they did what was expected of them. They were never considered for the gold medal because of lack of pics and videos. Not documenting the cheater's bloody face plant is inexcusable.
And for Gold ... The Great Son of Letsrun.com, the fearless night warrior, the smartest sleuth of the Internet: ASHER DELMOTT!!!! Without him the cheater would be partying in Times Square by now.
As promised there will be a statue of the great Asher. We have decided that it will be put up in New York. We just have to tear down that French woman with a torch that currently occupies the location where the statue will be. Rojo has promised to fly in a world class sculptor as well as a construction team for the job.
All Hail Asher!
