Gasparilla 2010 Michelob Ultra - Kip SHOULD BE DQ'ed

Kip Litton is listed on Wikipedia as the winner of the Michelob Ultra Challenge at Gasparilla 2010. the winner should be Pedro with Gary in 2nd. As we understand it, the Michelob Ultra Challenge is basically a sum of 3 performances at Gasparilla - a 5K, a 15K, and a Marathon. We have shown a picture of Kip Litton walking for the 17:33 5K. That alone should be enough to disqualify him from the Michelob Ultra Challenge at Gasparilla Distance Classic. Additionally, his 15K and Marathon performances are also very suspicious.

Notice there is already an asterix next to Kip's performance at Gasparilla.

We believe the true winner of the 2010 Michelob Ultra Challenge to be Pedro, followed by Gary and Patrick.

"I had previously commented on the unrealistic performance of KL in the 2010 Gasparilla Distance Classic. 2nd thread, summarized here:

'The 15K starts at 7:05 am, and the 5K at 9:30 am. Litton would have finished at 8 am. Now consider that his 15K time would have been a 4 1/2 min. PR past age 40. Are you then going to come back after this and run a 5K with only 1 1/2 hrs rest, and run within 17 sec of your PR? And -- at age 48 -- do all this before running a marathon the next day within 2 1/2 min. of your PR? I don't think so!'"
