Hard To Believe, But It’s True

UVA trackLRC Investigates University Of Virginia Employing Banned Doper As Throws Coach; Coaches Association Honors Him As Regional Coach Of The Year A person serving a doping ban is supposed to be forbidden from all track and field activity during that ban. Any athlete working with him or her is subject to their own ban. Yet in Charlottesville, VA, banned Olympian Martin Maric has been coaching collegians for more than year. Amazingly, the coaches association thought it was a good idea to honor him as the regional coach of the year.

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.
