"Gordy Brew, long time chairman of Western Athletics Club, has been recognised by England Athletics for Services to Athletics at the North West Regional Awards ceremony.  Gordy was unable to travel over to the UK on Monday 14th October to receive his award; instead the Chairman of the IOMAA, David Pryke, surprised Gordy with the news after the Western

10 event in Peel on Sunday 6th October.


Gordy was a founding member of WAC some 33 years ago, taking on the role of Chairman, which he still holds.  Under his guidance the club has grown with its athletes having competed at all levels up to Commonwealth Games.  Gordy has been involved not only as Chairman of WAC, but as an official, a coach, a social organiser, event organiser and  more. When organising events, or marking out a cross-country course, Gordy is always the first to arrive and the last to leave. He has been instrumental in the organisation of sportshall athletics, an initiative that is introducing a new generation of young athletes to the sport.  As a starter, wearing the bright red starter's blazer and cap, Gordy has been a truly distinctive figure, officiating at schools athletics events, summer track leagues, northern league matches and youth commonwealth games.  With an eye to the future, he is currently training

6 new starters from all over the island to follow in his footsteps.  He is a true servant of the sport who fully deserves this recognition of his devotion to the development, delivery and enjoyment of athletics."
