RE: Frank Meza 2:53:10 at LA Marathon (70 years old) unoffical time (just finished)
Koya - Thanks for the post. I also sent an inquiry to Let's Run in 2015 and got a "We may look in to it" type of response. There was definitely some whispering about Frank in the LA distance community, especially after the CIM DQ became more widely known.
It's a bit crazy that USATF is so cavalier about not looking closely at potential world record performances from someone who has a previous history of DQs and missing splits...and very little record of other performances of note at shorter distances.
Perhaps the LA Marathon race officials need to do an exhaustive investigation of Meza's races...all available video clips, digital timing records, photo evidence, interviews with other racers in that pace group, Strava and/or Garmin data from Meza, etc.
