On Feb 19, thanks to an observant race analyst who caught a New York-based food blogger lying about her race times during the Fort Lauderdale A1A Half Marathon.
Mr Derek Murphy who focuses in uncovering marathon cheats found out that Ms Jane Seo 24, had a give away photo that disclosed the distance she covered did not match the race’s 21km got disqualified from the race in the end.
Supposedly Ms Seo had completed second in the half-marathon was a 2014 Harvard graduate who has written for websites such as Huffington Post and Buzz feed.
However with a post-race photo of her displaying off her medal and wearing a Garmin GPS watch proved to be telling otherwise.
Ms Seo had only found to cover 11.65 miles in a time of 1hr 22mins 7secs when Mr Murphy leered in to examine the watch.
