RE: Robert Young fakes run across America
My gut says 95% he's cheating. Based on his lack of experience and hobby jogger background, he has likely always found it easy to impress and thus fool non-runners. I actually don't even buy the actual record was set honestly. It's just way too easy to cheat so why wouldn't you if no one will ever know? On a track, despite PED rumors which may be extremely difficult to verify, we can rest assured athletes are completing the distance honestly. I don't buy it for a second that this guy is running 60+ miles a day.
There should be at least two easy metrics of proof here. If you were going to take on this challenge, wouldn't you want to make sure you have conclusive proof that you ran the whole thing?
1. Video evidence - easily done with a gopro
2. GPS - a second verifier to prove your pace was reasonable
I'm sorry, a GPS device, witnesses and a support crew are not nearly enough evidence.
