Quote, LA Times:
"With this latest disqualification, L.A. officials have again asked Meza to run with an observer. He said he plans to enter in 2020 to prove he can finish the marathon in less than three hours.
“That’s my only silver lining,” he said."
On June 25 Derek reported on marathoninvestigation.com, quote:
"Shortly after telling his team that he would be running in Chicago he addressed the coaches separately, and contradicted what he told the team. He told coaches that he was diagnosed with a heart condition and that his running days may be over."
Well, along with the evidence provided by Derek and deadesq, I come to the conclusion that Frank really is a world record holder. Not in marathon running, of course.
In any case, I know nothing comparable in sports history, neither in the Tour de France nor in athletics, swimming, boxing, bowling, you name it. The annoying thing is not that he cheats, but that he is so obviously cheating.
