I wonder if his retirement is all part of a plan to play the victim card and file a lawsuit, ciaiming harassment and loss of income as a result. You can see them getting their expert witness on the stand and asking them what is the number 1 way a marathon prevents cheating? Answer, they use timing mats to verify the runner has covered a certain section of the course. Q. So if a runner crosses all the timing mats laid out on the course you would conclude he ran the race? A. Yes In my expert opinion I would conclude he ran the race. No further questions.
I just wonder if they think they can prevail based on this and a lack of an eyewitness to his cheating.
