This is a very good article. When I step back and take a look at the 
overall picture (whether running marathon, radiosport contesting, or any 
other competitive activity), to me it reveals the problem you encounter 
when dealing with a sociopath personality type. (Google it!)

There really is only one "solution" for you. The majority of researchers 
suggest you simply walk away from that person. You will always be in a 
no-win situation. I speak in first-hand, experiencing this dilemma, in 
an extreme hard-core case.

Unfortunately the contest sponsors can't simply walk away! Even if 
DQ'ed, the sociopath will take that on as a new challenge. That was 
demonstrated numerous times in the article.

Thanks for sharing this, Steve.
