A while back, when it emerged that Arg's sister (who?) had cheated at London, I browsed the results - and there were a number of others listed as 'result pending' where the chip had failed to register at all of the 5k mats.
Now - the majority of these have been disqualified before yesterday's announcement of the millionth finisher, BUT there is one glaring exception:
L Rowley, runner 55366. Running at 31/32 minute split in the first half to give a time of 2h11 at halfway, he then fails to register at the 25k mat in Docklands before resurfacing at 30k in Canary Wharf.
Agree it's not the most cunning of shortcuts, he's not done the full Tommy shortcut at Tower Bridge - but he 'ran' the missing 9k in 39 minutes which gives an average of 4m20 second/km - a 5k speed of around 22 minutes.
And yet his speed then drops down to 34m and 35m for the next 5k splits....
It gives him an 11 minute negative split!
Surely this deserved a disqualification?
