Five-times British sprint champ Jeanette Kwakye returns to compère coaching awards

Olympian Jeanette Kwakye will host the 2020 UK Coaching Awards, which will take place virtually on the 3 December at 19:00.

Held by UK Coaching, the awards is a unique opportunity to honour and reward the work of #GreatCoaching across all levels in the UK.

This year’s finalists showcase the huge difference coaches, projects and organisations have made to the health and happiness of the nation, especially against the backdrop of the coronavirus pandemic.

This is the second-time Jeanette Kwakye will be hosting the event.

A regular broadcaster for the BBC, Sky Sports and Channel 5, Jeanette has worked at many signature sports events, including the World Athletics Championships, World Swimming Championships and the Commonwealth Games. As an influencer within the sport and physical activity industry, she champions women in sport and works with the Youth Sport Trust to help young people around the country realise their potential through sport.

Jeanette, said:

It’s a joy to have been asked by UK Coaching to host their awards evening again. This year’s online delivery might be a little different but it’ll still be a glittering celebration of all the good that coaches do nationwide. Congratulations to this year’s finalists, who show the positive impact coaching has on people and communities – even in times of crisis.

“If coaches weren’t adapting their sessions online to continue to meet the needs of their participants during the pandemic, they were connecting with them in other ways, through team chats, pub quizzes, sing-a-longs and arranging food deliveries for those who needed the support.

“Don’t miss out on a heart-warming evening, get your tickets today. I look forward to welcoming you all on the night.”    

Join Jeanette and the stars of the show – our finalists – for a truly inspirational evening of great conversation and humbling stories.
