UKA Coach Building A Better Coaching Environment


Leon Baptiste: Developing and Working Within a Coaching Team

Leon became the 100m European junior champion in 2004 and won his first major title six years later by taking the 200m gold medal at the 2010 Commonwealth Games held in Delhi.

In 2012 Leon started coaching a sprints development group at Loughborough University. Leon is a volunteer, novice coach who approached a more experienced coach to form an informal mentorship relationship. He now operates alongside Steve Fudge as his mentor coach and also Glyn Hawkes as an assistant coach and has managed to produce a style of coaching that encompasses the combined knowledge of this coaching team. Leon and Glyn still operate as volunteer coaches.
