Another Cheat Caught - Zimbabwe Marathon

Recommended Posts

Looks like another cheat has been caught. Looks like the Zimbabwe officials have done a great job.

If you don't want to read the report, in summary, male ran for a female and crossed the line in first place for female. Timing and photo evidence, competitor DQ

I just cannot understand why this is even attempted with today's technology.

It's not a lot, but maybe this was the reason?

I know of someone (not me, I'm not fast enough) who raced with someone else's bib when the entrant got injured and couldn't race, and went on to accidentally win that persons age category.

Didn't claim the money.
