Triathlon row may affect bid,,4-1360305,00.html

Oh dear. As warned, it was bound to get messy and this is the last thing any of us would have wanted. However, if you are going to take on the establishment you need to be completely above board. Which the 2-page interview with Current Chairman Peter Coulson in the AGM issue of Tri News seems to contradict the spirit of fair play as Dr Sarah Springman is so keen on when it comes to the ITU as per this press release on the BTA website:

"it is inappropriate for the ITU to use its resources to campaign for a candidate for the forthcoming ITU elections. In the interests of fair play, a fundamental principle in sport, all candidates who stand for election for positions within the ITU should be treated equally."
