“We’re building champions”
Coach Tara Self has lived by the words “We’re building champions” her entire life and now she’s imparting the philosophy to sprinter Jerome Blake. They keep him motivated and focused, reminding him exactly what they’re doing every day. Whether it’s in a new country or from home, together they’re building champions.
Jerome switched sports from hurdling to sprinting just after he immigrated to Canada. To complete this switch, he moved again — this time to Coquitlam. That’s where he met Coach Self and they embarked on their training journey together with the Coquitlam Cheetahs.
