Not sure how you track these down but this one is definitely dodgy... Hasn't managed less than 30mins in a parkrun and then gets sub 3:30 in a marathon. No wonder VLM are having to reduce the GFA entries.
Yes, particularly when the photographer's my husband. He got just about every other runner in a recent 10k.
K80, he probably just wasn't expecting you to be going past him so early!
Looks like DF3 has broken the Run Britain site now. Or the marathon has, as many appear not to believe the official results anymore. Wonder whar could have gone so monumentally wrong. Was it only chip timed or was there a bloke with pen and paper as well?
I know someone who was laughing at there 2 hr PB last night.
DF3 appears to only have reported some facts.
Don't shoot the messenger.
Surely the issue is WHO he as reported his facts too? If he wasseriously about bringing this to people's attention - wouldn't you report it to the race organisers and let them investigate? Innocent untilproven guilty and all that.
Jeez... Go and get laid, all of you. NOW!
Was that an offer ?
Well I've got out of bed on the wrong side, but my grumpy sex is quite good.
have you actually thought there are no race photos because the lady decided it was unwise to run on an injury and didn't sctually take part.........
Manchester chip timing is recording times for people who have not actually ran.
if you had set up athread with a title of 101 ways to cheat GFA and just said number 1 give the chip to someone else nad carried on from there fine....
or if you had set up a thread about how manchester chip cockup is gpoing to have an effect on GFA and the chances are all times will be null and void on the power of 10 like cardiff half was a couple of years ago fine.
But no.you needed to give a link to photo and details of a woman who has not made a single claim to getting this time.on her club or her facebook page etc.....she like many thousands of runners are probably trying to get Manchester to sort out the times......
those like her who and a club mate who have miraculously got a massive PB are laughing with their mates at the results not trying to do a fast one.
those who have got a result way slower are cursing the=at their massive PB's might not be recognised unless its sorted....
just because its possible to get information its doesn't mean its right to ridicile and have a go at someone on a public forum on here......
where do you stop.....find a newspaper article about someone who was raped 10 years ago and put it on here asking did they really get the verdict right or was she just asking for it......its in the public domain so can be discussed
seren, the getting laid comment is aimed at you too. If you don't agree with it, why the hell are you feeding it? Drama survives from prolonging and enciting drama.
Important this Internet shit isn't it!
I for one welcome these sort of threads.DF3 has obtained some facts and put them out in the public domain.So whether its cheating (unlikely), or Manchester afflicted with crappy chips, or Run Britain being not particularly good at processing their data then I'm all for a bit of stress testing the system.Seren - I didn't notice DF3 ridiculing or having a go at someone. Presented facts that we can intepret our own way. I repeat, there is clearly an issue with the chips and yes, she probably is laughing with her mates, so why are you spitting feathers?
because he gives her deatils etc and her times..and then he makes a post about how easy it would be to get a good for age time giving your chip to someone else and making comments that there are no photos of her........
which to me is saying that he believes that she gave the chip to her husband or some guy to run for her to cheat.......
despite knowing that the manchester chips are all fucked up.
sorry but I would hate tofind out that people on an internet forum ios calling me acheat.......he has only singled her out when there are hundreds of results like that......
either list them all or list none of them....
one thing to laugh with your mqates about a cock up and another to have people on a public running forum calling you a cheat.......
which is what all his comments amount to
if they were celebs/ politicians in the public arena then fair enough but i realy think its uncalled for to link to someone timer and info.
this could have been discussed without trying to pick on one individual.....
if you look at the results for mahcester and put in a common surname like williams...you will find that adjoining numbers are given the same times.......
there are 4 williamns finishing at the same time .and lots of them that seemed to run as pairs......
look at any one surname and see how many people must have been running hand in hand........
its one major cock up.......and i think if the reulsts are looked at then an apology is in order
in fact there are so many runners with the smae surname who finished ho;lding hands and with numbers in a row they should contact the guniess book of world records because they are several under every surname
Seren, that's absolutely true.
I just typed in the name "Jones" and lots of them were holding hands too.
