SPIRE welcomes Olympian Kerron Stewart to the coaching team as Head Coach – Sprints, Hurdles & Middle Distance.
Kerron, originally from Jamaica and a world class sprinter, claimed silver in the 100 m and bronze in the 200 m in the 2008 Beijing Games, as well as another silver in the 2012 London Games as a member of the 4 x 100 m relay team. She is an alumnus of Auburn University, where she was named All-American seven times, the 2007 SEC Runner of the Year and USTFCCCA National Runner of the Year. In 2008, she was selected for the Beijing Olympics following a first-place 10.8 100 m and a 21.99 second-place 200 m run at the Jamaican Olympic Trials in Kingston. That same year, Kerron earned her first Golden League victory and would go on to earn four more throughout her career. Kerron’s dazzling career also includes three bronze medals and one silver medal at World Athletics Finals, and one Pan-Am Games silver medal.
Kerron is excited to dive in at SPIRE. “I am elated to join this dynamic and evolving team that’s invested in developing and inspiring young men and women.
