Raniere lied about 100 yard dash, Sportswriters reference suggests

How sad it is when you discover your Vanguard has lied to you.
Keith Raniere has told people including evidently the Times Union that as a teen he “tied with the state record for the 100 yard-dash”.
This did not sound true so we looked up the records.
It is apparently not true.
Raniere who was born in 1960 became a teen in 1972.
He stopped being a teen by 1980.
The New York Sportswriters reference lists all NYS High School state champions from 1972 onward for outdoor track.
1977 was the last year the 100 yard dash was run at states. It then became the 100 meter.  Nowhere is Vanguard listed.
Here are the winners for state record.
NYSPHSAA boys outdoor track championships

100 yards — Dave Meyer (Berner-8) :09.8
100 yards — Neil Green (Millbook-1) :09.8
100 yards — Willie Smith (Uniondale-8) :09.6
100 yards — Keith Broughton (Williamsville North-6) :09.9
100 yards — Adley Raboy (Maine-Endwell-4) :09.7
100 yards — Ed Vincze (Wheatley-8) :09.6
100 meters — Brian Denman (Boys-PSAL) :10.5
100 meters — Mark McMillian (Corning East-5) :10.6
100 meters — George Nicholas (St. Joe’s-CHSAA) :10.83
100 meters – Bryant Littlejohn (Buffalo Turner-CHSAA) :10.6

Now it is possible that when Raniere says he tied for the state record in the 100 yard dash, he meant that he timed himself at home and found it to be tied with the true record holders.
But we could not find Raniere in the record books.
So here’s a shout out to you, Keith– could you forward to us some proof of your tying for the state record in the 100 yard dash?
I will print it and eat a measure of crow if you do so.
Otherwise I will suspect that you are doing a little bullshitting.
Now of course a lot of people pad thier resume and lie about thier accomplishments.
But Keith, you are supposed to be a beacon of truth to your followers.
If you have lied to them, how can they believe you can lead them to the truth?

100 yard dash
Artist’s conception: “Raniere readies himself to run in the 100 yard dash.”

About the Author

Frank Parlato is an investigative journalist.

His work has been cited in hundreds of news outlets, like The New York Times, The Daily Mail, VICE News, CBS News, Fox News, New York Post, New York Daily News, Oxygen, Rolling Stone, People Magazine, The Sun, The Times of London, CBS Inside Edition, among many others in all five continents.

His work to expose and take down NXIVM is featured in books like “Captive” by Catherine Oxenberg, “Scarred” by Sarah Edmonson, “The Program” by Toni Natalie, and “NXIVM. La Secta Que Sedujo al Poder en México” by Juan Alberto Vasquez.

Parlato has been prominently featured on HBO’s docuseries “The Vow” and was the lead investigator and coordinating producer for Investigation Discovery’s “The Lost Women of NXIVM.” Parlato was also credited in the Starz docuseries "Seduced" for saving 'slave' women from being branded and escaping the sex-slave cult known as DOS.

Additionally, Parlato’s coverage of the group OneTaste, starting in 2018, helped spark an FBI investigation, which led to indictments of two of its leaders in 2023.

Parlato appeared on the Nancy Grace Show, Beyond the Headlines with Gretchen Carlson, Dr. Oz, American Greed, Dateline NBC, and NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt, where Parlato conducted the first-ever interview with Keith Raniere after his arrest. This was ironic, as many credit Parlato as one of the primary architects of his arrest and the cratering of the cult he founded.

Parlato is a consulting producer and appears in TNT's The Heiress and the Sex Cult, which premiered on May 22, 2022. Most recently, he consulted and appeared on Tubi's "Branded and Brainwashed: Inside NXIVM," which aired January, 2023.
