Record breaking climber denies shes a cheat Code:
It’s been just under a year since Australian amateur climbing star Lauren Conrad launched the world’s highest profile cheating scandal involving multiple athletes.
And while Conrad is now back on a high after having her case dismissed, she isn’t content with her situation just yet.

According to Conrad’s lawyer, Simon Williams, the Australian champion is ‘deeply disappointed’ she has been thrown out of the sport after spending eight months out of action after suffering a broken leg.
Conrad, 24, has had a cheats clause in her contract in place since June 2015 and while the clause was not breached, it was unclear whether she had been successful in making the money she was owed from the alleged kickers or not.
Williams said she wanted to take the matter to the Supreme Court, where she is due to decide later this week whether to sue for breach of contract.
He said it was ‘absolutely crazy’ that he would have to take it to the bench when the outcome of the trial in which Conrad was set to go to trial had been decided so quickly, and that it was ‘quite frankly embarrassing to put on an emotional stage’.
‘It’s absolutely crazy to be out on the court and think the judge will have any sense of whether the case is about the cheats or not,’ he said.
Williams has said it is now his intention to take the case to arbitration to seek damages and win his clients back.
