Goebel DQ'd from Win at Milwaukee

Jennifer Goebel of Lombard listened to her iPod during the late stages of the Milwaukee Lakefront Marathon on Sunday, a violation of USATF rules, and it cost her the victory, which she only had gotten after the original winner, Cassie Peller, was DQ'd because she accepted a bottle of water from a friend in between official aid stations, also a USATF rule violation. The disqualification of the top two women has raised quite a stir, and late Wednesday, Corina Canitz, 42, of Brookfield, Wis., the two-time defending champion, was declared a winner after Goebel's appeal was turned down. Goebel, a physical therapist in Elmhurst, finished in 3:02:50. I have been tied up and I am a friend of Goebel's, so maybe it's best that I refrain from too much reporting on this one. The last time I saw her was a week ago today when I wished her good luck. I don't think she had any idea she would be in contention to win or be embroiled in a controversy. There has been good reporting of this story from Tom Held of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. Please read the following:

Its a shame Bob!
There are two types of rule breakers, those who knowingly violate the rules and those who do so not knowing. I would like to know which category these ladies fall into.

While a lot of runners think the rule barring iPods is really, silly, fast runners who have a chance to win should know the rules and comply with them.

We have the Bentley GT Wind Rider whose style resembles the extremely popular Bentley 6.75 Chronomat. The Bentley Motors T Windrider with a self-winding chronograph was specially designed for aviation with the help of an Italian Air Force flight team, The Frecce Tricolori. Many more styles of the winder Navitimer World such as the Blackbird and the Crosswind special are also available.
