Triathlete disqualified for bike tampering in Ironman 70.3 Syracuse
When the going gets tough, the tough gets going the saying goes, but some others take to more drastic measures. A Canadian triathlete was caught red-handed at tampering with a competitor at Ironman 70.3 Syracuse and was disqualified from the race.
Racing in the 40-to-44 age group, Kristen Johnson spotted letting air out of the tires of rival Sharon Schmidt-Mongrain in transition before the race started. Both Schmidt-Mongrain and Johnson were top favourites in their age group, and their bikes were on the same rack.
