Now, there's a name I haven't heard in a long time. And she held to it, all her life.

She stunned everyone when she won the Boston Marathon. But it didn’t take long to uncover the truth: She cheated.
On April 21, 1980, at the Boston Marathon, the fastest men finished first, and then, at 2 hours, 31 minutes and 56 seconds — an amazing time, a world-class time — the first woman crossed the line. She was wearing a bright yellow shirt, damp with sweat, and short white shorts with blue piping. The TV announcer didn’t know what to say.
