Protester Wins Briggs and Al's Run in Milwaukee

"To kick them out of a race - are you kidding me? - for drinking water in a marathon? That's so bizarre."

-Nate Weiland, who defended his title in Milwaukee over the weekend at Briggs & Al's 8K Run Walk but purposely avoided breaking the tape and refused his 1st place award. jsonline

He's upset with the Badgerland Striders for DQing the top 2 females at the Lakefront Marathon (one for wearing an iPod and one for taking water outside of a designated aid station).

His time for the 8K race was 24:35.
