MADISON, Wisc., May 21, 2018 /Christian Newswire
/ -- Steve McConkey, President of 4 Winds USA, releases the following and is available for comment:
A few months ago, Kevin Beck started stalking Steve McConkey, President of 4 Winds USA, through social media by creating a multitude of false identities. Eventually, Beck started calling radio shows trying to cancel McConkey radio interviews.
4 Winds USA is a Christian organization standing up for world-class Christian athletes. The ministry recently helped reverse the Olympic Committee's transgender policies.
Beck claims McConkey is a mental patient, a liar, a cross-dresser, closet homosexual, racist, has a false university degree, and is a beggar.
McConkey contacted the FBI after Beck commented at different times that it would be better when Christians die off. Though not a direct threat, McConkey became alarmed over the amount of vile postings on his Facebook and two pages (over 15,000 followers combined).
Kevin Beck is the author of Run Strong and co-authored a book called Young Runners At The Top. He is a contributor to Runner's World magazine and at one time was a senior writer. Beck writes articles at different running websites.
Beck was a marathon runner with a personal best of 2:24.17. He attended Concord High School (NH), the University of Vermont, and Geisel School of Medicine Dartmouth where he did not finish.
After contacting the Boulder Police Department, McConkey acquired Beck's criminal record that included physically abusing a woman and a dog, defying a restraining order, five warrants, a criminal trespass charge, and a conviction for theft under $500. He spent ten days in jail for the theft.
Beck's addresses on some of the criminal reports were as homeless. He has been arrested for public intoxication numerous times. There are more cases in different parts of the USA.
Steve McConkey is the founder and president of 4 Winds USA. Steve and Liz started in world-class track and field ministries in 1981. From 1982 through 1992, Steve was a USA National Club Coach for Athletes in Action (Eugene), Lay Witnesses for Christ (Dallas-Ft. Worth), and 4 Winds USA (Minneapolis-St. Paul).
