The guardian article is pretty crap. Why focus on internet bullies? They make him into a victim. RY deserves no sympathy. There's even a line about him not hurting anyone but himself - what about his family, what about the current record holder for the run he cheated at to try and beat?

I know the author of the original article had prepared a follow-up story, so I don't know why this other guy is on the story they published. Maybe her editor had a different spin they wanted to go with?


Outside was crap too:

https://www.outsideonline.com/2120811/did-ultramarathoner-rob-young-cheat-verdict
"Young cooperated fully with the investigation"

I told the author:

"If you read the report, you'll see that Rob Young:

-factory reset his watches and deleted the data on them
-deleted runs from his TomTom account
-refused a request to supply his laptop which would have had backup TomTom files on it
-lied in his interview

I'd hardly say he "fully cooperated"."

Still no correction...[/quote]

It's a strange situation. So far, the media reports after he was found to be cheating seem to be less critical than the ones from when the allegations were first made. Now they have proof RY cheated, and they go easy on him? Makes zero sense.
