Marathon coverage came up lame

October 18, 2011

Shame on you.

What an embarrassment The Sun's coverage of the Baltimore Marathon was. Accompanying the article describing "one of the most thrilling finishes in the event's 11 year history" you chose to offer photos of a bunch of runners-up approaching the finish line and photos of the racers interacting with the animals at the zoo.

Buried on page 16 of the sports section were pictures of the two winners, Stephan Muange of Kenya and Olena Shurkhno of Ukraine. What an insult and slap in the face to our triumphant guests from out of town. I am embarrassed for Baltimore because of that rudeness.
