In last yrs 10 K race the winning time for the over 70-74 age category was 40 minutes which is impossible for someone that age. I checked the person on the internet and again he did not appear as a world class runner so I asked them to check the electronic tags in the shoes to see if he completed the complete 10. Again nothing but he finished 23rd out of over 5,000 runners and first in his category. Seems he skipped ca 9 kms out of the 10 and waited for the front runners to rtn and jumped in and won the age group. After my complaint they canceled him out however with the certificate of ones time which is available almost immediately he had in writing his world record time, left IL and now with this doc in hand could run Boston, London, Paris whatever.
