I think Rossi does deserve Rushmore status as does RY. There are a lot of doozies on the Marathon Investigation webpage but most are slower runners trying to scam slow Boston qualifiers (my favorite which was pulled was the woman who faked running the entire BM and posed at the finish line w a discarded Mylar blanket). Litton wanted to be thought of as a 2:50 guy, a great age grouper not just a good one (he was a legit 3:08ish guy which was a fine time for his age).
The degree of narcissism and lengths they go to is what makes the best cheaters epic like Rossi, with Litton for sure the king. RY is right up there with all the outrageous claims of superhuman endurance and speed.
Would be nice if an Indy lets runner would memorialize the exact spot of that tracker in the RV park. Maybe a nice rock or plaque
