Q&A: WMA president hopefuls Rex Harvey and Stan Perkins
Rex Harvey (left) and Stan Perkins
Rex Harvey of Ohio and Stan Perkins of Australia, candidates for president of World Masters Athletics, have graciously submitted responses to my questionnaire. See Rex’s here and see Stan’s here. I won’t comment on their answers — just yet. I’ll let you be the judge. But notice how carefully they craft replies where Europe is concerned. This is a nod to the hegemony of the European delegations, who hold the key to the presidency. Among other things, Rex and Stan parry my agenda-freighted queries on records, doping and the WMA’s pathetically dull Web site. I salute both for their honesty and willingness to endure my brutal interrogation. Biographical info is covered in earlier profiles here for Rex and here for Stan. The WMA elections are August 5, 2009, at the Lahti General Assembly.
