The greatest (most widespread, most innovative, just plain insane) cheating in NASCAR was during the '60s:

"It’s generally agreed that NASCAR cheating reached its high-water mark (or low water mark, depending on your view) in 1966, when Yunick built a Chevelle that looked exactly like one off the production line, but was actually one-eighth smaller, reducing aerodynamic drag and making the car dramatically faster."

In the old days, NASCAR was about having the fastest car that got by inspection, and being able to drive it around and through whatever and whoever might be in the way. Now it is about a handsome face and a nice backstory. I miss the mean cheating *******s.

''If you're not doing it, you're falling behind," he said. "It's not obviously - shall we say - the moral thing to do, but I'm not willing to sacrifice my personal performance and four years of hard work for someone that is willing to do it and get away with it."
For this sort of thing I place the blame on the stupidity of the rules.

FFS the guy just admitted he cheated. Have a look at the footage, if he cheated throw him out of the games and give the medal to the honest beloved patriot

Same goes with that idiot Hindes (sic) in the Team Pursuit.

What a farce :mad:
 
Stella Walsh

Won the women's gold - was a man
In the Olympic Games in both 1932 and 1936 Polish Stanislawa Walasiewiczowna competed, also known as Stella Walsh. She took gold in 1932 and silver in 1936 on the 100 meter event.

She was tragically killed in an armed robbery in Cleveland, Ohio, December 4, 1980, aged 69.

Autopsy after her death in 1980 showed that she had male genitalia. Stella on the right:
