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!
