Yesterday's PopQuizzical Daily! answer: 
Nero.
Indeed, the Emporer decided to enter the ancient Greek Olympics in 67 A.D.  Did he decide to train for them?  Heck no!  Why bother.  He entered several events including the chariot race in which he fell off his chariot in the first turn and did not complete the race.  However, like the other events he entered, he was declared the winner (bribery is popular because it works so well).  After his death his wins were stricken from the Olympic records, and I’m pretty sure somebody peed on his grave.  C’mon, he deserved it – at least a little.
