Ruiz never wavered. She stuck to her story. She had run the entire race. Meanwhile investigations continued in both Boston in New York to determine if she was lying in Boston officials and reporters interviewed the runners finished next to none of them saw her during the race in New York officials reviewed videotape of every runner.

Marathon more said without question. It was the same woman as cameras snapped. Rosie Ruis stood in front of a skeptical crowd of reporters.

Many of the reporters expected release to confess admit that she cheated and end the entire controversy instead with a slight smirk on her face. Rosie Ruis once again. Insisted that she'd run the race moreover. She blamed the media for the controversy claiming their coverage was unfair and that any unknown runner.

She was on top of the world down in the crowd. Bill Rodgers brother. Charlie watched and begin to feel physically. Ill He also realized that Ruiz's didn't look like a marathon runner and that there must have been a mistake as the medal ceremony concluded. Charlie set off to find a race official to tell them of his suspicions within five minutes of visas victory. The organizers of the marathon knew something had gone terribly wrong when we come back Rosie. Ruiz faces serious questions about her shocking marathon. Victory now back to the story on April Twenty First Nineteen Eighty Twenty six year old administrative assistant rosier. We's came out of nowhere to win the Boston Marathon. It was a great story. An amateur runner with only one other race tour name. Who beat the odds to win the marathon? It seemed too good to be true because it was rosie. Ruiz hadn't run the marathon at all she had cheated. Suspicion started to mount immediately after we cross the Finish Line. It started with a male winner. Bill Rodgers who could sense? That hadn't run twenty six miles a few minutes. After Ruiz was given her medal she was pulled into a television interview. With Catherine Switzer. Who had run the marathon in nineteen sixty seven by registering as a man? Switzer introduced released to the world as the winner of the marathon in possibly a new American women's running record holder. First Switzer ash-trees. How many marathons she'd run before. Ruis responded that this was her second after the New York Marathon. Only a few months before with a time of two hours. Fifty six minutes Switzer asked what Ruiz's attributed her twenty minute improvement to between pauses to sneeze and cough. We simply said she didn't know like bill. Rogers Switzer began to feel doubt so she tried to take deeper. She asked Ruiz if she'd been training with a lot of heavy intervals. Workouts designed to increase speed ruis laughing replied that she didn't even know what intervals were. Switzer's unease was evident in her expression when she ended the interview noting that Ruiz was a mystery woman who seemingly evaded all of the marathons checkpoints on her way to victory by the time. The two winners were brought in front of a group of reporters for a news. Conference that confusion over releases out of nowhere. Victory had turned into suspicion. Reporters followed Switzer's lead and peppered Ruis questions releases answer is left the reporters more skeptical than they'd been before. She said she'd only been running long distances for a year and a half didn't have a coach or advisor and didn't know what time splits were to explain why she didn't seem tired after running an entire marathon. Ruiz said she'd gotten up with a lot of energy that morning. When asked how it was possible that no other female runner had spotted her during the race. She offered three explanations. I she had passed herself off of the men seconds. She was so new to the sport that no one knew who she was and finally her short hair must've made the other runners assumes he was male the reporters were now certain that something was wrong with Rosie Ruis Inter victory by the time the final marathon runner crossed the finish line. Just over an hour. After Ruiz's finish rumors and speculation were spreading rapidly. Adding fuel to the fire were comments from Jacqueline Guiraud and Patty Lions stating that. Neither of them saw any woman pass them during the race. After the press conference Bill Rodgers went right to the Boston Marathon. Race director will clooney and told him that there was no way. Ruis had run the race. Clooney knew he had to handle the situation carefully. He was concerned about the effect cheating scandal might have on the reputation of the Boston Marathon. A few hours after the race clooney met with Rosie Ruiz at her hotel so she could tell her side of the story or we brought along her friend. Steve Merrick the president of a running club join the week before the marathon. Who claimed he could vouch for? Release Ruis defiantly maintained that she ran the whole race and won it fair and square merrick backed up Ruiz's story as much as he could specifically noting that he saw her at the starting line in Hopkinton however neither America nor anyone else saw release at any other point in the race. Clooney left the hotel that night. Unsure of the truth release was convincing but so is Rogers. Only one thing was clear. The Boston marathon was now embroiled in a major controversy and it was up to Clooney in the Boston Athletic Association to find out what really happened.

Ruiz stepped up to the starting line of the Nineteen Eighty Boston Marathon. She felt a huge amount of pressure to perform. Not only did she feel a personal pressure to replicate her supposedly great finish in the one thousand nine hundred seventy nine New York marathon but she also felt as though she was carrying the burden of the women who came before her. She couldn't let herself do significantly worse in Boston. Let alone fail to finish and risk revealing that. Her performance in New York was ally too much was at stake her reputation her job and possibly even the reputation of women's long distance running the Boston. Marathon was one of the first races established after the eighteen ninety six Olympics and was first held one year later on April. Nineteenth 1897 quickly established itself as one of the most respected and celebrated running events the world and remains today. The world's oldest annual marathon marathons I began. They were only open to male runners and it took nearly seventy five years for the Boston Marathon to be open to women in nineteen sixty six twenty four old. Roberta Gibbs submitted an application for the Boston marathon but was rejected by the race director. Who stated that women were physiologically incapable of running long distances? Give refuse to accept that instead. She took a bus from San Diego to Boston and hid in the bushes as the race started. After a few moments and wearing a bulky sweater she surreptitiously jumped into the crowd of runners within a few minutes. The runners around realize that Gabe was a woman gave her their support. After they told Gibbs that they wouldn't let the race organizers. Throw her out give took offer sweatshirt and revealed her gender by the end of the marathon. She was a celebrity. The Governor of Massachusetts arrived to shake her hand as she crossed the finish line. Still the race refused to allow women but give had inspired them to run it anyway. The next year twenty nine year old Katherine Switzer registered as a male to get a number and penny then finished the race. Despite race officials attempt to physically remove her from the race. Thanks to the efforts of women like give and Switzer the Amateur Athletics Union finally permitted women to running marathons in nineteen seventy two that year. Eight women started the race and all finished by the time Rosie. Ruiz arrived in Boston in one. Thousand nine hundred eighty. The number of women running had risen to four hundred fifty six still a fraction compared to the five thousand male runners when Rosie ries woke up on the morning of April twenty first nineteen eighty. She may have intended on running the race legitimately despite her lies about finishing in the New York Marathon. She might have still been conflicted about doing the same in Boston and may have wanted to prove to herself that she could run the entire race but cheating was always an option. The weather was warm that morning when Rosie Ruiz left her hotel. She took the train to the suburb of. Hopkinton where she met. Four hundred and fifty five other women and over five thousand men at the starting line of the marathon. She received the official number W fifty signifying that. She was the fiftieth ranked woman in the race. Thanks to her supposed finish in New York Jacqueline Guerrero. A Canadian runner was the favourite to win the women's race. She'd won the National Capital Marathon Ottawa. The year before and many of the spectators in Boston that day were there to see if Garo could win another Gero stiffest competition was with American Patti. Lyons who came in second in the New York Marathon. Twenty six year old. Rosie Ruis was not on anyone to radar despite her high rank and her strong finish in New York but ruis was there to win and was willing to do whatever it took to achieve. First place the starting gun was fired. Fans cheered as Rosy Ruis and a five thousand other runners set off on the twenty six mile journey shoulder to shoulder in a massive swarm. It wasn't long before her legs and feet to tire. Her breathing became more labored. Deep down understood that Oliver Training hadn't truly prepared her for a full marathon. She was never going to finish all twenty six miles not long into the race. Release had a momentous decision to make..

"Rosie what kind of. What kind of training have you been doing you? Sixty five to seventy miles a week. Have you been doing a lot of heavy intervals? Someone else has been. I'm not sure what intervals on. What are they so our girl has no idea. Intervals are was. You would think a runner at this point. You're running in a marathon like we have established. We're not runners. We both know. I know. I don't WanNa do so the media. They got the call and there was some talk about her body. Not FITTING THE STEREOTYPE FOR RUNNER. Which is gross share? She was like a little bit thicker. If you will at it didn't it didn't look like what an average merit compared to all the other women who were behind her. It just didn't really match and again the Sweat Show. I read an ESPN DOT. Back in nineteen eighty. They didn't give a fuck about timeout body so brutal. Yeah exactly so I read an article on. Espn that said Ruis ran across the line with an unfit body in perspiration lists skin terribly written sentence. It's easy like I'm done by body and I can. Let's get which can be nice glowing even a little okay. So a reporter asked why she wasn't that tired afterwards besides the dramatic like yeah but then she got up. Doing all these interviews was like. Hey I won so rosy said she just like got up with a ton of energy that day. She's like what's going on is amazing. I'm bill saw merit. Yeah I can run another one so all. These red flags are going up. People are starting to ask questions. Who is Rosie Ruiz? What is going on? So let's let's see if I can give you a little background who this woman was before we go any further so born in Havana Cuba in nineteen fifty. Three and this was right when the Cuban Revolution was happening. So Fidel Castro's taking over. He's going up against. The dictator of Cuba lasted five years. Things aren't great. Things are are dicey so rosy told reporters later on in life that her parents were afraid of the political situation so they sent her and her brother to Florida to live with her aunts and uncles and cousins. Gotcha when they fled. It was right around the time. Us was breaking ties with Cuba. So it's like I can send my kids but I cannot go so they separated from their parents at a super young age so she immigrated to Memphis Florida when she was eight years old with her brother. She was separated from her mother in the process and had to live with her aunts uncles cousins which is rough. I can't imagine so you went to school in Florida. So she starts like trying to live a normal life against going back to normal and then she went to college in Nebraska. She graduated with a degree in music. In nineteen seventy seven. I'm not reading anything running. Okay and all the things. No no no no no so again. A lot of it is like word of mouth like when she's like being interviewed by reporters later on in life. She kind of able to tell her story the way that she wants to hear some things that she let reporters now she had been around her. In highschool she underwent two successful brain surgeries in Florida in the seventies to remove a benign tumor and to insert a plate into her skull. Just like casual. Oh by the way. Did you know so? Then she moved to New York City in the late seventies and in nineteen seventy nine. She qualified for the New York City Marathon. Which as far as I'm concerned is the first race our girl has ever took. How did she qualify? Considering she had never run a race war. Well let me tell you. Apparently her application for the New York City. Marathon arrived after the cutoff date for the race. She was she was late but she receives special treatment from the New York roadrunners which is like a non-profit start marathons 'cause she told everyone she was dying of brain cancer. She's had tumors. She's got a metal plate in her skull and now she's dying of brain cancer. I think this is an unreliable narrator. Can she did the New York City Marathon in October of nineteen seventy nine and finished with a time of two fifty six so she finished twenty third amongst women so the qualification time for Boston is three hours and thirty minutes so she was in? She's in this girl was golden. It's like Oh yeah so flash FORWARD TO HER WIN IN BOSTON. Everyone starting to get pretty suspicious of how this woman came out of nowhere in the running world little like we are right now Six months later she improves her time by twenty five minutes places. I in the Boston marathon crazy. Which is you know. I'm not a runner but I I did. Some research shares walking insane people maybe shave like a couple of minutes off within six right but you're not shaving off twenty five minutes. That's almost a half hour which is insane so keep going so within hours of her crossing the Finish Line in Boston. They were already looking into it. This is a little too shady. They looked through the footage. They looked through photos but there were but there was never any confirmation that she'd hit any of the checkpoints people like we don't see her so rosy claims it was because of her short hair. People thought that she was a boy. There was somebody that saw rosie that day okay. It was a pair of Harvard students who said they saw her jumping out of the crowd about a mile from the finish. Because you guys don't do it by Harvard. People have big brains smart. You'll remember so well. All this shit is going down right. Everyone's like we caught her red handed. She was cheating the New York City. Marathon is like willow same rosie that came in twenty third and our motherfucker so they looked into this as well And they didn't have any evidence of Rosie at any checkpoints. They looked through ten thousand photographs just taken in like the last mile. Nothing and a woman came forward. This is obviously heavily publicized on TV. On the radio people are talking about this. A woman came forward saying she had ridden the subway. She ridden the subway with Rosie during the New York City race so rosy told her this woman that she had hurt her ankle and wanted to go watch the end of the race she was wearing like a bib in stuff right. So some of like. Aren't you supposed to be raining going? I thought she does the same thing. Pops out of the subway onto the course and finishes play. Apparently she rode the subway for sixteen miles. Where you coming from where he what? Where did you start Vania? So New York City was like Yes Sir Everton fair days. Boston was like on stripping. You of your metal. She refused to give up the metal. By the way which back I a one had to be made sucks. The president came in second 'cause they even though they subsequently get a medal. They didn't get that moment thousand percents. Now they're going to be like embroiled in the controversy. And it's like an Astra's there's probably still like Rosie lifers build conspiracy theories so rosy lost her mind she well right up lost her mind afterwards. I'm not even talking about before. So she spoke to media. She cried ton. And you know what? I'll give her some credit here. She never gave up the faculty lamb. She like doubled down. Girls Consistent Aso. Listen to this possible Rosie that you even doubt now that whether you ran the race or not. No there's no doubt in my mind I know what I did and and and and I will prove it again in the future so she pulled the woman card right she said. Hopefully this will have men in the media. Start to take women racing seriously. It's bullshit I won this race. I got to enjoy for a minute before people started calling me a liar which is frustrating. Because you can't pull this card and not mean it pull the card when it's valid because it's valid a lot. Yeah but then when you when you put when it's not all of us look like Shit and all those fucking assholes fodder to see. This is why we don't believe that women are the worst devil. So Jacqueline Guerrero from Canada was the one shrew winner. She was the one that participated in the level. Jackie this is your day your moment. Oh compla- the Canadian national anthem. Maybe oh boy So the Boston Marathon. Kudos to them they actually offered. Rosie a chance to run against the next year. You know what maybe this is all just one big giant misunderstanding and our bad. If it is bad if it is we will give you the. You can run again and everything. That's wrong exactly. She was like I'm busy. Yeah she's like. I have my my cousin a birthday party thing. I don't Yeah I lost to my book club in like. I actually read the book this time. So and I believe you read the Book Rosie. Nobody believes so advertise things. Were like all right. This this is full of it. Let's just drop this and move on so things kind of dropped off. After that later in her life Ruis was actually arrested in New York for allegedly stealing sixty thousand dollars in cash checks from her employer in nineteen eighty two. This was two years after the Boston. Marathon stuff was not getting. She's done And then things are getting worse. She was sentenced to three years of probation in. Nineteen eighty-five couple years after that for cocaine trafficking. She tried to soak up. Yeah so it's like been put through the ringer having a really hard time making bad choice after choice. So things got bad. After that a couple years later she really started fall apart. So as of two thousand. She still maintains that she ran the entire nineteen hundred Boston marathon and she won however an acquaintance you notice and all of these videos. You're watching all of these interviews. That she's doing. There's there's one guy standing behind her and it's the same guy every single time and his name. Is Steve Merrick okay? He believed her. He's like you know what Rosie's my friend. I'm going to back her until the end. So he came out in two thousand and said that she admitted to him a few months after the race that she had cheated recalling that she jumped out of the crowd not knowing that the first woman had gone by yet. A leave me. She was shocked as anyone when she came in first says she was intending to come in like twelve. Or here's here's what some people think happened. She just wanted to participate in the New York City Marathon about. She just wanted that ribbon. She said she wanted to say I did this. Sure and she came in like twenty third right and she got that cutoff. Time because of her qualification time then she qualified for the Boston Marathon. She didn't do the math to like. Make sure that this. Just just take a peek down the lanes if there's any women so she did the exact same thing in Boston she's like. Oh now I get to run in another marathon do this. I'll do the same thing. Then she'd like accidents came in first place and then she's got to put up with this massive lie because the tea is faster maybe than the New York. Subway didn't account for that or I don't know but so F- Rosie died this past year on July Twenty nineteen in Florida. She actually like had changed her name and everything and she kinda wanted probably get away for oh absolutely. She moved back to Florida. He's like I'm getting away from the stuff. So in her obituary I read an obviously no mention of any of this dramas She read she would always want you to remember to celebrate life because tomorrow is never promised. So let's break this down real quick. Rosie had some intense trauma in her life when she was like eight years old probably younger than that just because Cuba was like a mess and then we have no idea what her history with mental illness is like if she has one ray. What's going on there? And what we do know is that she's a little bit of an unreliable narrator so some of the stories we're you know we're going to have question marks decide them because we don't know what's true and what's right but what. I think I know. Is that everything kind of keeps on pointing back to her when she was young and just like wanting to fit in and wanting to be a part of some probably just like wanting to be normal life in Florida. And that's where I kind start to feel for her totally and you're just like it's like you get it like she wouldn't be part of something bigger and whatever from her childhood she brought to that but she like went about it obviously in like. She made some of the best bad choices. But yeah you gotTa have empathy so a quick rerun.
