RE: Frank Meza 2:53:10 at LA Marathon (70 years old) unoffical time (just finished)

I don't understand even the mild criticism directed at Amby Burfoot. He tried to look into it. He eventually put his name out there after the evidence was overwhelming -- photos of Meza entering the course in three different locations. He is the first major name in the sport (apologies to Derek and Gene Dykes) to go on the record.

Also, these criticisms are being leveled on a running forum of a running news website that has completely ignored the story.


To be fair, elite athletes don't campaign on issues like this.

Their campaigns are out on the road - their training miles, victories and records.

They do it for the sport and the fans.

And when the Whitlocks, the Dykes and the Burfoots of the world show their excellence, they earn the fans' respect and the sport's history will always regard them highly.

But today the fans and the sport has to protect their own, and collectively call upon the race directors to take appropriate action.
