Technical leader and head coach of Jamaica’s team to the recent World Athletics Championships in Budapest, Hungary Maurice Wilson, is demanding an apology from sprinter Tyquendo Tracey following allegations made by the athlete during the championships, which Wilson views as defamatory.
In a letter to the athlete from his lawyer Valrie Neita Robertson KC from the law firm Robertson and company, Tracy has been instructed to deliver the apology on the same platform as his defamatory allegations; failing which, Mr. Wilson will proceed to seek redress in the appropriate forum.
Wilson, according to the letter to Tracy views with deep concern, allegations made by Tracey in a social media tirade, which created a frenzy in mainline media, internationally and locally, adding that the allegations defy the facts and are totally untrue.
The correspondence to Tracy also outlined that Wilson was shocked at Tracy’s tirade against him which has caused damage not only to Jamaica’s reputation internationally but to Wilson’s professional life and has caused himself and his family to be exposed to threats and abuses.
The two times national champion Tracey alleged in his social media post that he was on the receiving end of unfair treatment, after indicating that he was bumped from the men’s 4 by 100 meters relay team in favour of the world University Games 100 meter champion Kadrian Goldson who is coached by Wilson.
