Lap of honour for ‘fastest loser’

 

Sir, – “Athletics to drop ‘fastest loser’ phrase in sign of the times” (Sport, September 27th). Is the term’s intended replacement “fastest non-automatic qualifiers” a shoo-in to carry off the runner-up prize in this year’s “Euphemism of the Year Award”? – Yours, etc,

PAUL DELANEY,

Dalkey,

Co Dublin.
