Treacher defends his honor with letter to WMA brass
Typical of a 400-meter man, Anthony Treacher is hanging in there. Treacher, the British ex-pat handed a year’s suspension on ridiculous grounds, has taken his fight to the next level. He’s written to two dozen leaders of World Masters Athletics, saying: “The enclosed letter . . . is primarily addressed to WMA officers to explain the circumstances surrounding an allegation in Winston Thomas’ letter suspending me, amongst other things, for allegedly making a ‘public attack’ on your WMA colleague Friedel Schunk. As Winston Thomas’ suspension letter is ‘Copied to UK: Athletics, Swedish Masters, EVAA, WMA, IAAF,’ I have done likewise.” Can a lone M65 sprinter touch the conscience of world masters track? We’ll see.
