He told her that if anything had gone wrong during the marathon she needed to admit it as soon as possible ruis hesitated. Tears appeared at the corners of her eyes for a split second.

Ruis herself remained quiet outside the TV studio. The controversy only mounted that morning race director will cloney announced that he had opened an investigation into the allegations against Roe zero. We's it wouldn't be an easy or straightforward task to determine whether Rosie Ruiz cheated the Boston. Marathon didn't record the times of every individual runner as they reached one of the races. Numerous checkpoints instead. The marathon only recorded the numbers of the first one hundred runners at each checkpoint since the first one hundred runners were all male. None of the women's times were recorded at any checkpoint. Instead of relying on checkpoint evidence Clooney would need to closely review recordings of the TV broadcast an eye witness testimony a team of experts including Katherine Switzer reviewed three sets video from the race and couldn't identify Rosie Ruiz on any of them nor could they find her. We is on one of the informal lists of the top five women runners at any point in the race as the scrutiny intensified Rosie. Ruiz returned home to New York City but she couldn't escape the controversy. The press was beginning to hound. Her now explicitly questioning the validity of her victory. The questions only got louder as the story grew into a nationwide scandal. The concerns led the New York marathon to open their own investigation into releases.

Attention but dog had reporters still followed some even resorted sneaking past the building security guards to go directly to release his door eventually released into roommates abandoned the apartment and move somewhere secret their release hunker down and try to ride out the storm with the constant media attention and the looming threat of disqualification release felt as though she were living in a nightmare throughout every interaction with a roommate's friends or reporters who manage to track down. 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. That crossed the finish line and couldn't find Ruis. None of the mounting circumstantial evidence was enough. However for Boston. Marathon director will clooney to disqualify. Rosie ries with so much attention on the marathon and the investigation. He felt as though he needed proof beyond the shadow of a doubt he needed something. More concrete like clear eyewitness testimony. John Faulkner Harvard Senior was jogging by the marathon with his hand on April twenty. First as they went past the crowd at Kenmore Square they witnessed a woman in a yellow shirt running. Strangely through the crowd she entered the race in its final mile. Faulkner didn't think much of it at the time assuming that someone would stop her or realized she jumped into the race. The next morning faulkner opened his copy of the Boston Globe and saw photograph of Rosie Ruiz on the front page announcing her as the winner of the marathon. It was the same woman he saw jump into the race. Faulkner initially didn't want to involve himself but after cajoling from his roommates he finally agreed to call the Boston Globe. And tell a reporter what he'd seen. Meanwhile in New York another eyewitness reached out. Susan Moro the woman who had befriended released during the New York. Marathon was watching the news when report about the Boston. Marathon came on. Moro immediately recognized the marathon winner as the same woman. She'd met on the subway as the news. Report continued covering the controversy. Around Louise's finish Moro began to feel nervous. She didn't know what to do. After some deliberation moral decided to contact the New York Times the next day on Wednesday April twenty third. The Boston Globe published John faulkners eyewitness account early that morning reporters. A news vans arrived at Harvard eager to interview him that night. The New York Marathon director told reporters that he didn't believe Ruis could even run one mile at the pace. She claimed to have run an entire marathon with evidence against her mounting Rosie. Ruiz called a press conference the next day. Her only ally. Steve Merrick stood beside her and warned reporters ahead of time that he'd end the press conference if it turned into a carnival. Susan Morrow attended the press conference at the invitation of New York Times reporter. The reporter asked Mario if Ruis was the woman she'd seen riding the subway during the New York. Marathon more said without question. It was the same woman as cameras snapped. Rosie Ruis stood in front of a skeptical crowd of reporters. Despite Merrick's warning the reporters were noisy and hostile given the published accounts of John Faulkner. 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. Who won the marathon would be subjected to the same scrutiny and skepticism that she was although Ruis continued to vociferously deny the allegations of cheating.

As Ruis innocently introduced herself Rogers took a closer look at her and quickly realized that something was fishy or we was wearing a thick shirt with sleeves. Despite the fact that all elite long distance runners preferred thin sleeveless shirts even stranger. There were no sweat stains on her uniform.

Ruiz hadn't run the marathon at all. She had cheated. Suspicions started to mount immediately after we cross the Finish Line. It started with a male winner. Bill Rodgers. Who could sense that we hadn't run twenty six miles a few minutes? After Ruis 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.

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 paid 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 Res 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 Gero 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.
