Ato did nothing wrong in my eyes as he delivered the services for which he was paid and the Aussies were quite pleased. I would have done exactly the same given the same opportunity to help and get paid.

Ato made some good moves there to widen his network and advance his career. Well done to him. :thumbsup:

PS: I don't blame him for suing though as private emails are supposed to be kept private.

This is a ridiculous story that is meant to embarrass Ato and Nova. If she provided money for him to do a job and he completed that job of coaching satisfactorily, that is all that matters.  What they did, If they did, outside of the coaching responsibilities is their private business. To characterize the affair (even if they had one) as being paid for by government funds is ridiculous.

ATO IN SEX SCANDAL
Olympic medallist threatens legal action over ‘gross fabrications’
By Essiba Small


Four-time Olympic medallist Ato Boldon has said reports of a sex scandal involving him and Nova Peris, Australia’s first indigenous Olympic gold medallist and senator, were a gross fabrication.

The report, published in the Northern Territory (NT) News yesterday in Australia, alleges Boldon and Peris had an extra-marital affair back in 2010, when he was “handpicked” by Peris, now a senator, to run the ten-day Jump Start to London training programme.

The paper also alleged in its breaking story yesterday Peris used taxpayers’ funds to finance her “extra martial sexual tryst” with the then 35-year-old Boldon back then.

However, in a statement on his Facebook page yesterday, Boldon accused NT News of gross fabrications, saying Peris “is a former training partner of mine and has been a friend for almost 20 years”.

Boldon said his trip to Australia back in 2010 was for the purpose of holding several youth clinics and that it was a successful undertaking.

“The trip was co-organised by one of my now-deceased colleagues at Athletics Australia,” Boldon said, adding: “I will be following the senator’s lead, including, but not limited to, pursuing all legal action possible for this malicious misrepresentation of the details surrounding my presence in Australia in 2010.”

Ato Boldon’s father, Guy Boldon, told the Express yesterday he was unaware of the sex scandal issue, and that he first heard of it in a brief call from a friend yesterday afternoon.

Social media was buzzing among locals with the news of the alleged sex scandal. On Twitter, followers of Boldon’s page poked fun at the former athlete and NBC broadcaster.

Errol Fabien’s 1998 song, “Ato Tea Party”, also got fresh interest and was shared many times across Facebook timelines.
 
A bit about Boldon
 
A former senator, Boldon won his first international senior-level medal at the 1995 World Championships, where he took home the bronze in the 100m. At 21, he was youngest athlete ever to win a medal in that event.

At the 1996 Summer Olympics, Boldon placed third in the 100m and 200m events, both behind world records.

In 1997, he won the 200m at the World Championships in Athens, Greece; Trinidad and Tobago’s first world title in the Athletics World Championships, making him only one of only a few sprinters to win both a World Junior and World Senior title.

In the field of broadcasting, Boldon cut his teeth quite by accident after injury forced him out of the 1999 World Championships in Spain. Boldon was hired by the BBC to do commentary and analysis for the Championships and proved to be an instant hit with the audience. He joined NBC as a track and field analyst in 2007.

The real measure of a man's character is what he would do if he knew he would never be found out.

That's it right there.

But sadly, this is how some people make their money in life. Propagating this kind of news.

Unfortunately Nova is being extorted by her dead ex-husband's family and they have used this "alien abduction" level tabloid to facilitate it. She will reveal all in Parliament Thursday in Oz. No sex and no scandal. Trip was funded by Athletics Australia and they have reiterated same yesterday.

Disappointed that our local media adopted the "sex scandal" reference utilized in the Aussie media in describing this episode. No one paid anyone to have sex here. No non-consensual conduct occurred here. No abuse of office (as say ... allegedly occurred with the former Minister in granting priority to people seeking housing) predicated on sexual conduct occurred here.

It likely isn't difficult to locate sufficient arms-length in the arrangement. Business separated from pleasure. Pleasure derived from business.
