I'll say this, they put their money where their mouth is. No mealy mouthed "questions are being raised...nobody knows for sure" journalism speak in that article.
That is about the only good thing I can say about them and the article dripping with self righteous sanctimony.
I found the reaction of the original race founder to be interesting and informative:
Bart Yasso, who founded the race and then gave it to Via, for comment on the Rossi situation, he summed up the situation very well, “I have the same statement for everybody when they ask me. ‘The people at Via, their job is to work with the disabled citizens of the Lehigh Valley. I don’t want them wasting time on Mike Rossi.'”
They defend, rationalization and justify this continued crusade by saying that they are the only true defenders of the integrity of the sport. This is almost laughable because on their dimension, the semi official line between running and jogging is a 7:00 mile or roughly a 3 hour marathon and had Rossi gone onto the site and bragged about his 3:11 time, I am sure more then a few would have dismissed this as the merger accomplishment of a field filler.
The guy has been publicly shamed, driven off the social media and his "accomplishment" and reputation in tatters and yet like a dog with a bone, they cannot let it go. I suppose they are really no different then any other set of religious fanatics on a holy crusade.
