Hey doubler can you give us an update on your research? Is your conclusion that Frank's times are legit?

Lots of people have reported Frank’s results to me.

I had looked at a couple of his prior races in detail (2017 LA for one) and couldn’t find anything that would lead me to conclude that he cheated. There is a photo of him off the side of the course during LA 2017, but that was well after he completed the race. I mention this because I’ve had emailers reference that as evidence, but it proves nothing.

I’m aware of CIM 2014. I agree that his DQ there merits extra scrutiny of his other results.

I do have a lot of photos and some video . I will look into everything with more scrutiny. But initially, there’s nothing that jumps out.



Did Derek (Doubler) write this before reviewing the full thread? There is a lot of good analysis on here to show why Meza's splits are beyond belief to anyone who has ever tried to set a PR in a marathon.

It seems like Marathon Investigation is only concerned with Instagram models and poor saps who make the unfortunate decision to accept a bib from someone.
