Women’s marathon record holder – Syliva Rueger in question

Great quote from Silvia Ruegger who may have the officiality of her Canadian Marathon Record stripped because she ran with the men. Ridiculous I say.

“Go after the dopers. There’s assisted, right. We did it clean. We did it on hard work and sacrifice. If one of those guys wants to come and look at all my journals of what I did, the price I paid to run that time, it was not because there was a guy running in the race, it was because I ran 200 kilometres a week and gave up everything else.”

Crazy mad runner, wanting to be fitter and faster but too busy to do it right. Still, I keep trying.

    Canada has decided she gets to keep her Canadian Marathon Record! Paula Radcliffe certainly deserves to retain hers. Such a shame some federations think this way.
