Did this model cheat during a recent half-marathon? Or is she really the fastest woman on the planet?
Allegations of improper behavior are being raised after Bre Tiesi-Manziel, a fitness Instagram model, finished the Diva's Half-Marathon in Temecula, California, with an unbelievable, record-breaking time. Overall, Tiesi-Manziel completed the 13.1-mile race in 1:58:22, course records show. That's an average 9:06 per mile pace overall, better than the average woman, but not earth-shattering. However, a closer look at Tiesi-Manziel's splits are raising questions. Bre's posted time for the first half of the race was 1 hour, 31 minutes. If true, that means she ran the final 6.7 miles at a pace of 4 minutes per mile. Four minutes per mile...? That would be an earth-shattering, record-breaking time.
Is it possible? Sure. Is it likely? Not even in the neighborhood.
