The 10 Greatest Sports Cheaters of All Time
These men and women are true game changers - in the worst possible ways.
1. OH, CANADA
Canadian sprinter Ben Johnson was disqualified from the 100-meter race at the 1988 Seoul Games after the post-race drug test revealed he'd been using steroids. As far as we can tell, Canada hasn't been allowed back in the Games since.
2. PATRIOT GAMES
In 2007, New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick (pictured) was caught videotaping the New York Jets' defensive coaching signals. "Spygate" set off a media frenzy and tarnished the Pats' record; still, there are worse things you can do with a camera in the NFL--right, Brett?
3. ROSIES ARE RED-HANDED
In 1980, Rosie Ruiz won (asterisk) the Boston Marathon in the female category in 2.5 hours. It was later revealed that she disappeared into the crowd, then showed up on the course half a mile from the finish. Oh, and to qualify for Boston, she ran (re: took the subway during) the NYC Marathon. Disqualified, perhaps, but not forgotten as an innovator.
