Wednesday was not a great day for the Manziel family. Johnny Manziel was released by his Canadian Football League team, the Montreal Alouettes, and banned from signing with another team in the league. His wife, Bre Tiesi, was accused of cheating in a half-marathon.
Tiesi, an Instagram model with more than 300,000 followers, has been accused of cheating during the Divas Half Marathon on February 16.
LetsRun.com, which often exposes people for cheating during running events, posted a story with the title, "Is Johnny Manziel’s Wife The Latest To Be Exposed As A Road Race Cheat? Yes, We Think She Is."
The site believes her split times defy logic.
According to the race’s timing website, Bre covered the first 6.4 miles in 1:31:29 (14:15 per mile). She didn’t record an 11-mile split but ended up at the finish (13.1094 miles) in 1:58:22. That defies logic. That would mean that Bre ran the final 6.7 miles of the half marathon in 26:54 — which is faster than any human has ever run for 6.7 miles as it averages out to be 4:00.7 per mile pace.
Those splits certainly seem to defy logic.
Tiesi, though, has taken to social media to defend herself. She is calling the cheating claims ridiculous.
Manziel, meanwhile, could reportedly be on the verge of playing for a new professional football team. The quarterback has reportedly been in contact with the Alliance of American Football league.
It's been quite a week for the young couple.
