This sporting life

Is it any wonder? A Mexican politician runs a marathon, gets there first and then gets disqualified for taking a 9 mile shortcut.
Oh, this is too rich, and it would be funnier if it wasn't so pathetic.
Perhaps he is telling the truth and he never intended to finish the race.
Perhaps he thought he could cheat everybody as he has always done in his less than virtuous political career (not that he is the only one). In a way, it doesn't matter. The incident just shows the political immaturity of my birthplace, a country where nobody can trust anybody, precisely because of widespread cheating and corruption in every area of life.
