Role Models Whatever The Weather
Met-Track takes great pride in offering first class sports coaching and mentoring by some of Britain's best as excellent role models for young Londoners, and the involvement of two coaching staff in the recent Winter Olympics was a classic example.
Although not involved in the medals, Met-Track coaches Montell Douglas and Greg Cackett both represented Team GB in Pyeongchang, South Korea. They were both involved in Great Britain's bobsleigh teams, using their strength and speed inherited as experienced track athletes over past years.
Montell is one of Britain's fastest female 100m athletes of all time, and Greg' has always figured in the top echelons of male sprinting in the UK, with both offering invaluable services to Met-Track schemes in the Capital. Scheme Director, John Powell MBE commented:
"Of course we are immensely proud of all our coaches, but it really is the icing on the cake when they achieve major honours in selection for British teams, especially an Olympic Games. It represents a fantastic example to the young people they work with as to what really can be achieved in sport with a little hard work and application. This is what we are all about."
Also among the honours, but on the indoor athletics arena, has been Met-Track's Dan Bramble, who took a silver medal in the British indoor championships in the long jump last month. He also competed in the subsequent British Athletics Grand prix in Birmingham, where the World Indoor Championships will take place this month.
