World Champion
May 2014: 
One of my former athletes, Kerenza Bryson achieves Gold at the Youth World Pentathlon Championships in Budapest; Team Gold (Youth A Team Gold): in the semi-final, Kerenza acheived a perfect performance of 5 hits in 5 shots for each of the three shooting components of the Combined Event: in a time of 9 seconds, 11 seconds and 11 seconds respectively. I coached Kerenza for 2-years prior to her joining Team GB and her competition performance reflects her dedication and training efforts. Well done Kerenza.
