Forget Steroids, Catch a Bus

Tsk, tsk, Rob Sloan. The  runner who came third in the Kielder marathon in England had to give his medal back after witnesses saw him catch a bus for the last section of the race and then jump off just before the finishing line. Once off the bus he  hid in a wooded area behind a tree until the first and second runners jogged past then he rejoined the race.  Mr Sloan was originally outraged that anyone would accuse him of cheating but later admitted to it after witnesses saw him on the bus. It also didn’t help that the lead pack couldn’t understand how he had passed them. After the race a smug Sloan told reporters the race as “absolutely, unbelievably tough”.  Awkward.
