RE: Frank Meza 2:53:10 at LA Marathon (70 years old) unoffical time (just finished)
Notice the variety of events where the USATF runners of the year are racing vs. where Frank likes to "race." It's only logical that someone who actually has this kind of talent would at minimum want to run Boston or New York. If I was able to even get within 10 minutes of the marathon record for my age group, I think I'd be racing in other places than just California.

There is an image showing the fantastical progression of Frank Meza in the marathon! From 3:19:59 at the age of 60 for an age graded score of 75% to 2:53:10 at 70 and an age graded score of 95%! For people who actually understand running, this is a fantastical progression, especially for someone who by his own admission has been running all his life. Sure, it is possible for someone who comes into running late in life to improve and maybe even follow this exact trajectory. Personally, I doubt the 3:19:59 is a legit time achieved without cheating. This looks more like a calculated plan to steadily improve over a decade of cheating.


and somehow the USA Track and Field doesn't acknowledge his race in 2018: Hmmm? Again, USATF knows he's a fraud.
