    China's orienteering team caught cheating

    The entire national orienteering team has been disqualified for using secret paths and markings during the Military World Games being hosted by China.
    Win at any cost is the new mantra?

    they cheat in a game they organized? I mean, they already had an advantage since they probably know the area already.

    This is the old mantra.

    This sounds similar to what you hear about Trailwalker once the PLA started participating (the part about spectator assistance).

    having home advantage was obviously not enough

    I guess being an International event the judges would normally be provided by the governing body(s) not China

    The 'support' people were deliberately blocking other teams.

    (This was what I've heard from multiple groups who participated.)
