RE: Frank Meza 2:53:10 at LA Marathon (70 years old) unoffical time (just finished)
Those three sub 20 mins splits during the marathon, including one at 18.55 certainly raise eyebrows. If he can run a 18.55 split during a marathon, then this means he should be able to run at least one minute faster in a straight 5km race...let's say 17.55. Is Frank capable of that? Only time will tell, and if Frank does indeed race that distance, many of us will be waiting to see what kind of speed he can race for 5km. 18.55 in a regular 5k for guys his age (70+) would already be an outstanding performance.
Seems like the good doctor is laying low for the time being. Let us see what transpires in his next races and if he can confirm that kind of form, because everything is related.
If he did cheat, then he is something of a genius - akin to those master hackers - because he seems to have gone basically undetected for so long or with little reprimands for so long.
One feels somewhat sorry for Frank, because cheater or not, his name has already been tarnished to a large extent.
