📰China 🇨🇳Bans🚫 Three Marathon 🏃♂Cheat Runners for Life
Three Chinese marathon runners have been banned from competing for life after breaking the rules at the Boston Marathon on Monday.
One participant gave his bib to someone else while the other two used forged certificates to gain entry.
The Chinese Athletic Association (CAA) has vowed to root out cheats to avoid giving the country a bad name.
The sport is rapidly growing in China, with 1,500 running events last year compared to just 22 in 2011.
More than 500 Chinese runners took part in the marathon in Boston.
