There’s other photographic and timing mat evidence of Frank Meza’s shenanigans in previous LA Marathons. In 2017 he gives up 53 seconds to a group of runners he’s pictured with (6 mile marker) in less than 0.2 miles. He’s pictured with A1116 shortly after the 6 mile marker (approximately 100 ft after).
In an earlier photo at the beginning of Echo Park Lake along Glendale Blvd Frank is captured running by himself with runners following him in the distance. This is about 0.2 Miles from the 6 mile marker. Runner one is wearing a white hat and singlet with glasses and blue shoes, A1049. Runner two is wearing a neon green singlet and dark shorts, A1116. In the photos you can see him blow by Frank in a few strides shortly after the 6 mile marker.
