Boston Marathon 1980; Rosie Ruiz

04/21/1980

Kathrine Switzer--the first woman to run the Boston Marathon as a numbered entry--interviews the women's unofficial "winner" of the race, Rosie Ruiz.  It became apparent that Ruiz had cheated and allegedly entered the marathon close to the finish line.  Eight days after the race she was stripped of the title.
