That must have been some kind of "tuck job!"

Sports Illustrated is reporting that a Zimbabwean athlete has been found guilty of competing as a woman and will serve three-and-a-half years in jail.
Samukeliso Sithole -- a triple jumper and runner who competed as a woman at several international sports events -- was convicted on charges of impersonation and offending the dignity of a woman athlete who undressed in his presence, unaware he was a man.
What I find hardest to believe is that he was able to keep his "secret" in place while competing in the triple jump!

No word yet on whether he will be banned from athletic competition including the Olympic Games. However, it is unlikely that he will be banned from the Crying Games.
