A lot of truth in this type of approach from big races, getting free advertising from the sporting press before the big name star "withdraws through injury". Back in 2014, the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow were hard selling tickets hard on the back of Mo Farah racing. I know one of the GB endurance coaches who told me that he had no intention of running at those games. Funnily enough, he withdrew with an "injury" the week before.
Punters should have been able to get their money back as they were sold under false pretences.
Poor people are poor because they are stupid. How much are tickets to watch Chicago marathon? How many people pay to run a marathon because of who’s racing it? Her name helps sell the marathon in general, if she runs or not is meaningless to everyone but her. Mostly some runners would be happy if she shows up to the expo etc.; she doesn’t need to run and everyone gets what they paid for. You idiots with your conspiracy theories deserve your low place in life.
