Cheating in Chess: Chess.Com/WSJ: Niemann has cheated over 100 times in past 5 years

This thread  "Coach-athlete sex, rape and PEDs at Huntington University? Nick Johnson scandal gets grimmer thanks to David Woods expose" 

has all the top 10 voted posts right now, but is too dark to be the thread of the day.

We couldn't believe how many of you are into the thread: Chess.Com/WSJ: Niemann has cheated over 100 times in past 5 years but if one thing LRCers stand for it is clean competition.

Mantz's Debut Still Getting a Lot of Positivity!

54 upvotes and 0 downvotes for this post on Conner Mantz's marathon debut:
"2:05:40 incoming.

Reading this thread tells me why Americans suck at the marathon. It's smallthink. Good thing Mantz doesn't think like that.

His track PRs are on par with guys who run 2:04. He's young and still improving. Do 21 year old Kenyans in their debut marathon think about getting a good effort in and hoping to hit their stride in their 4th or 5th marathon? Hell no, they compete for the win from the first effort.

USA is woefully underperforming at the marathon. My prediction is that this is finally going to change."

Mantz mania is so strong, Rojo got heavily downvoted for postinghe's more pumped for Grant Fisher's prospects in the marathon.

Thread of Day: Kenenisa Bekele gets another WR. 2:05:53 masters WR in London.

Bekele Masters World Record

LetsRun Nation was pumped Bekele got the Masters World Record in Berlin (even if many of them think Kipchoge is over 40). Bekele is so popular that this post: "The man is 40 and he's on pace to run the fastest ever marathon by a 40 year-old. He can definitely run 2:05. More to the point, the guy is a legend. If he wants to wind down his career running 2:05-2:08 then he's earned that right for what he's done in his career" on page 13 of the Live London Marathon threadgot 58 upvotes and 1 downvote.
