This isn't about Bolt or Ronaldo though is it? it's about a cheating scumbag cyclist. I hate to burst your bubble by the way but Ronaldo is not a 100 meter runner. Personally speaking, if someone was trying to bring charges, such as those against Armstrong, against me and I wasn't guilty then I absolutely would contest them. Him not contesting them speaks volumes.
Or you could make an effort and find a sport that you actually enjoy taking part in? Bearing in mind that you dislike running so much. Good luck with the marathon with your three training sessions per week, I'm sure you'll do really well.
I also feel that some people don't see running as a competitive sport, or at least don't see it as an equally valid sport as say football. Attitudes may be different if I was banging in goals week on week as opposed to running miles and doing races.
