Thread: Marathon Winner Disqualified for Listening to iPod

  1. #41
    Isn't the whole purpose of the Nike + kit for running, the ipod including. So then whats the point of an iPod if you can't run with it. Those rules are a bunch of BS.

    Using an iPod might give her somewhat of an unfair advantage because she's most likely playing music that's hyping her up, causing her to run faster and longer than say someone without any kind of music playing. To keep the competition fair no one should be allowed to listen to any music that every other competitor cannot hear.

    Dumb assed Americans, why even bother with this. It's just an iPod FFS.
    Will they disqualify those who have hearing aids(they're electronics too)

    I feel sorry for her but then again that is the rules. I think the rules are stupid but probably someone that doesn't have a ipod made up the rules.

    Some of you are so uninformed. If you actually were a runner you would know how much an iPod can actually help your performance. They get you pumped, get your adrenaline going. Theyre banned from practically every running event. You cant even use them in high school meets and runners accept this. She should have known better.

    Personally, she can take ME and place ME in her ear, (as long as they're clean), and I'll sing whatever song she wants, whenever she wants during a marathon...she's pretty hot...I don't think there's anything in the rule book against having an enthusiastic karaoke pixie sized latino in your ear as a source of music...

    Yeah, you'll be the coolest person in the room when you pull one out and show it around, but that gets old fast when three other people have them and one person somehow has one that glows in the dark.

    A marathon is a lot different than HS track. Kids are running 100m up to 2 miles.. that's 10 minutes (max) of running compared to 3 hours of running. That is horrible and she should not have been disqualified for it. Regardless if she was listening to it or not, what advantage would she have over the other runners? If anything, it could be a disadvantage because the ipod is extra weight.
