Stop riding on 'Donkey Man' nickname

THE EDITOR, Sir:

Javon Francis was an outstanding participant in the recently concluded World Championships and a champion in his right. It's so unfortunate that we continue to refer to him as 'Donkey Man', which is quite a disastrous name!

The name should not be mentioned with Javon's. He was not the one who should be held responsible for the 4x400m relay team's failure to get a medal. He was the best and fastest runner of the 32 in the mile-relay final.

I would appreciate if we all referred to him as a team saviour and not Donkey Man.
