About Coach Fedi
"Track and field has always been a part of my life".
My story starts as a child attending boarding school in Nigeria. I found myself exempt from every physical activity possible, diagnosed with asthma. Track and field changed all that; one day I ran my first 400m and the rest they say is "Herstory".
I became a beast practically unstoppable; Track being the ultimate teacher that the sport is, I ended up with a scholarship to college competing in the Heptathlon.
This meant great coaches and father figures along the way, I got exposed to many cultures and cuisine because of track, my confidence, strength, determination, spirituality can all be attributed to my love and desire to succeed at being a Track & Field athlete.
Yes I picked the event that determined who the ultimate athlete is. It was pure joy as I fought my way through every event.
In college I tapped into my artistic side majoring in graphic design and painting. After college I dedicated my time to coaching and inspiring young ladies to find the beast in them and giving them confidence to face life outside of the track. I found myself in that guardian role like many coaches and forged relationships that will last a lifetime.
This is where the inspiration for Itrackandfield emerged. I knew many athletes, coaches, parents and siblings who have shared the same journey, passion and dedication that I have witnessed through my years of being an athlete and a coach. I wanted a company that celebrated that shared passion.
