Kendall Schler Cheated to “Win” the St. Louis Marathon

Kendall Schler, the female winner of this year’s St. Louis Marathon, has been stripped of her medal after authorities discovered she cheated.  Schler began the race, then disappeared, and crept back onto the course after the last checkpoint to finish in first place.  None of the checkpoints along the way picked up her time, so her actual course is unknown.

Schler claims she accidentally removed the magnetic strips meant to time her, which in itself is a race violation.  However, she was only seen at the beginning and end of the race.  Her time was also removed and since it helped her qualify for the Boston Marathon, she lost her spot in the race.
