As usual Frank is overdressed compared to everyone else and 3:19:59 is damned impressive even for a shorts and singlet wearing, skinny, highly trained 60 year old, so definitely not ligit coming from Frank.
If it's possible for the super sleuths to scrape MarathonFoto's for off course shots of Furtive Frankie this would be a good early one to start with:
Joe Ogata was the true 60/64 age group winner at the 2009 Pasadena, Joe was also moved up to third in the 70/74 age group at the 2019 LAM where serial cheaters Meza and Robert Lautz were DQ'd.
Joe Ogata (M60)------Time: 3:45:23 Net Time: 3:45:22
Frank Meza (M60)----Time: 3:22:18 Net Time: 3:19:59
Note the Time/Net Time differentials, Joe managed 1 second, Fraudulent Frankie 2 minutes 19 seconds.
A quick look at Joe's ATHLINKS tell me he loves his running and has been shafted by Meza quite a few times when it comes to age group placings.
