S01E41 - Rosie Ruiz - Boston Marathon Cheater (1980)

Jason Connell and Sal Rodriguez breakdown the true crime story of Rosie Ruiz - Boston Marathon Cheater in 1980. On April 21, 1980, Rosie Ruiz won the Boston Marathon’s female division with a record time of 2:31:56. Ruiz would hold the crown for 8 days until a mountain of evidence proved she had jumped onto the course in the final few miles of the race. Ruiz never admitted to cheating but did receive public notoriety and long-lasting name recognition. “Doing a Rosie” is still runners’ slang for cheating by cutting the course.
