In a surprising and inspiring race, a female first-time marathon runner won the 2013 LA Marathon.
Aleksandra Duliba, a 27-year-old woman from Belarus, was the first runner, male or female, to cross the finish line Sunday, KTLA reports. Aleksandra Duliba, LA Marathon 2013 Record-Breaking Winner, Was A First-Time Marathoner
Isn’t it great. We knew it: women are superior to men in sports. It is only the patriarchy stops holding them back.
Aleksandra Duliba of Belarus wins the 2013 Asics LA Marathon women’s race in her marathon debut with a time of 2:26:05 to beat the men and claim the $75,000 Asics challenge in Santa Monica Sunday morning March 17. source
This is well deserved.
She earned $75,000 for her victory, $25,000 as the top women’s finisher and a $50,000 bonus for beating the top men’s finisher. Huff post
She won the "gender challenge". The first to cross the finish line, proving female superiority. She should get a Million.
2013 LA Marathon: Erick Mose finishes 2nd overall
Erick Mose of Kenya finished first in the men’s competition with a time of 2:09:43, outrunning his fellow countryman Julius Keter in the final mile of the the marathon. Aleksandra Duliba won the overall competition Universalsports
Great. At least a man in second place.
What a cheat!
The were given women an 18:35 head start and Duliba ran the race 16:36 behind the men. source
Isn’t this called CHEATING? Starting 18:35 minutes early? So a woman that was 16:36 minutes slower then the man got $ 75 000, while the man got nothing. Well, he got 25000 for being the first man, 16 minutes before the woman [prize rules here]
Actually, all top 10 males ran faster then the "winner". This is because the elite field was very small.
Oh, this is equality.
Note that many newspapers report that the overall winner, the first, was a woman. Without any clear explanation of the cheat.
In snooker, tennis, chess, and obviously, cooking, women have proven their superiority (ahem, vast inferiority) already. The US armed forces get weakened by women that clearly under-perform, as women get admitted without being required to pass the same tests.
- Oscar Nominations: Women Take a Back Seat — Again: "According to the 16th annual report, women represented only 16 percent of all directors, executive producers, producers, writers, cinematographers and editors on the top 250 grossing films domestically in 2013. That’s worse than 1998,"
As gender is socially constructed, can a man not declare he feels like a woman, and thus enter the women’s competition and the "gender‘ challenge? After all, it is not a sex challenge.
Human-Stupidity suggests future gender challenges a boxing match, where the woman can beat the man for 18:35 minutes, before the man can hit back or even move to avoid getting hit. Of course, an additional 150 lbs. weight advantage would be of additional help.
