A wonderful humor book for any sports enthusiast or lover of trivia. The history of sport is packed with outstanding athletic achievement and record-breaking heroism, but few care to remember that other inevitable aspect of sport: the cheating. Rogues, Rotters, Rascals and Cheats: The Greatest Sporting Scandals contains the most interesting instances of when man cannot rely on sporting prowess alone. From the Australian cricketer whose deviousness brought the condemnation of two world leaders to the marathon winner who had one firm advantage--she only ran half a mile; from Maradona's infamous "hand of God" goal to the world-record breaking Olympic woman's champion...who was really a man, these hilarious stories will leave you stunned at the audacity of these sporting cheats!
