Cheating Scandal in Ironman Racing:Very Similar

The NY Times has a terrific front page article today(4/8) on a major Ironman cheating scandal; there are a # of striking similarities between this scandal and the bridge ones...very interesting article

Swim.Bike.Cheat(scandal about Julie Miller, champion Ironman athlete, now disgraced and disqualified)

...and others.....
