The Amy hatred here is endemic.
Here is how an unbiased professional source (Ironman.com) reported her horror at Guinness'es refusal.
[quote]Oof! Imagine this: You log 520 miles running on a treadmill in a single week, aiming to crack the Guinness World Record. You pass the current record mark of 517.63 miles, and collapse in exhaustion and elation. And then, a technical detail derails your feat. Thatâ€™s exactly what ultra runner Amy Hughes did last Septemberâ€”but after months of processing, Guinness recently denied her record attempt due to improper witnessing.
There's a small amount of hatred and malice on here, but most are just questioning things with a lot of valid critical thinking. It's not hatred to want some integrity in the sport. Amy is claiming something extraordinary for a LOT of personal gain. Some of us see that as wrong if done under false pretences.
