One Q. Put to Bed
RE: Robert Young fakes run across America
It wasn't ever confirmed. Half this thread is now complete nonsense.
Claim: OMG RY took the PBs Down!
Reality: They are still on his website
Claim: His team changed all his wiki data
Reality: Someone in the world changed his wiki - there is no evidence it was RY or his team
Claim: OMG He must have been in the van
Reality: The video shows he wasn't in the video - thats it.
Claim: He lied about being a GB triathlete
Reality: Evidence exists to show he represented GB in a European Long Course Age Group Triathlon Competition
Claim: He's stealing the money
Reality: He's sponsored by several high profile companies who fund the adventures; money is raised via legitimate websites for charities.
Now there are things that haven't been cleared up yet; 15:56 5k, the full data set. But if Rob submits the evidence post run to the relevant body and they approve it you'll have an issue where several posters have written slanderous comments all over the board and I fully expect the likes of Lucozade a $1.3bn company to take legal action should posters be deemed to be doing their brands damage. Equally Rob will be under contract. I expect should he not meet contractual demands equal recompense be taken by his sponsors.
In the UK there has never been any hint of financial misappropriation of funds or cheating before in any of his runs as far as I can tell. I neither claim he is clean or dirty, but having watched this thread from the start ask legitimate questions it has dissolved into creepy, stalkerish rumourmongering, witch-hunts and fantasy crossing into slander. You would think bro'jo's would be sensible enough to not encourage such action in a case where, because of the nature of ultra running definitive proof is always tough (unlike say, chip timed marathons).
