In the UK you are innocent until PROVEN guilty.
There are many UK runners who have heard about him, but I don't know many who still believe he is legit. Sadly, Rob young isn't the first UK runner to accomplish incredible feats by less-than-credible means, including travelling in a vehicle. Everyone here remembers Rob Sloan, and Rob Young's performance seems to be made from the same cloth.
Even the "Marathon Talk" podcast, who had done a long interview with him in an earlier episode, said that they found it very hard to believe. They agreed that Rob was very likeable. And then compared him to Lance Armstrong. I believe that says enough about Rob's reputation in the UK.[/quote]
No, please don't compare him to Lance. Both hardcore cheats, but Lance was always talented and had real ability.
This bloke's an average runner, several of which you can find at any club up and down the country.
