The news headline caught my attention. It read: “Marathon Cheat Crosses the Line to Win Second Place.” Intrigued, I started reading about a marathon runner who was so determined to get on the podium that he resorted to cheating. Instead of running the race with all of his competitors, he hid among the spectators and rejoined the group of runners shortly before crossing the finish line.
His success was short-lived. Soon after the race, the young man was exposed, arrested, and will be facing fraud charges. Ouch!
