Further to the sports loss of Robert Stinson, former Treasurer of the International Amateur Athletics Federation (IAAF) and Secretary of the British Amateur Athletics Board (BAAB) - we wanted to provide further list of the impact Robert had on our sport.
London Chair Tony Shiret: “Robert was one of the most significant leaders in British and World athletics for a quarter of a century. He was also prominent in areas like the British Athletics Supporters Club and the British Athletics League where he was the first Chair. He helped to set up athlete Trust Funds and laid down the framework for the professionalization of areas of the sport. His influence was everywhere during what is now regarded as the Golden Age of British Athletics.
