Innovative Ways People Have Allegedly Cheated In Sports
Whoever said cheaters never win hasn’t been paying much attention to competitive sports. Cheaters may not always win, but plenty of winners cheat. And what matters to us is that they’re doing it in creative, interesting ways. Steroids? Boring and overdone. Stop that. Throwing games to win bets? Yawn. Nothing is fun about losing on purpose.

Okay, okay, we’re listening.
Here are 10 times people may or may not have broken the rules to get ahead in sports. Hey, you gotta reward innovative strategy. Some of us are born with brawn, and some people are born with a twisted imagination of how to win athletic competitions.
