Wilson demanding apology from sprinter Tyquendo Tracey

Technical Director for Jamaica's team to the recent World Athletics Championships in Budapest, Hungary, Maurice Wilson is demanding an apology from sprinter Tyquendo Tracey over what Wilson regards as defamatory allegations made against him by Tracey in a social media tirade last month.

A letter from Wilson's attorney Valrie Neita Robertson KC, said the allegations by Tracey have caused damage, not only to Jamaica's reputation internationally, but to Wilson's professional life and have caused him and his family to be exposed to threats and abuses.

Wilson is now demanding an apology from Tracey on the same social media platform on which Tracey's allegations were made, failing which Wilson will proceed to seek redress in the appropriate fora.

Tracey launched a verbal outburst over what he perceived to have been efforts to sideline him in the build-up to the heats of the men's 4x100 metre relay in Budapest.

He also lashed out at what he said were attempts to include another sprinter, Kadrian Goldson on Jamaica's quartet for the preliminary round of the men's sprint relay, arguing that Goldson had finished behind him at the National Championships.

However, the Jamaican coaching staff ended up using the top four athletes in the 100m from the National Championships for both the heat and final of the sprint relay, which meant Tracey and Goldson who finished 5th and 7th respectively, did not factor.
