TRIATHLON Zimbabwe (TZ) has given Pamela Fulton a fresh mandate to continue as national team coach following her recent appointment.
“As per the TZ constitution requirements and following careful consideration, we are pleased to announce that the executive board has appointed…Fulton as the national coach for triathlon,” TZ said in a statement.
“We extend our congratulations to Pam and are confident that her knowledge, guidance and dedication to the sport will be hugely beneficial to all of our young athletes selected to represent Zimbabwe in triathlon events this season.”
Fulton, who last month was elected the association’s vice president, expressed her desire to continue giving her expertise towards the development of the sport as head coach.
“I love my coaching,” Fulton told the Daily News.
The talented sports administrator has had lots of memorable highlights in her coaching career, among them accompanying top junior female athlete Andie Kuipers to the Youth World Cup in Switzerland.
“There are so many highs from my coaching career but a few of them are firstly being nominated to accompany the Zimbabwean triathletes to the Youth Olympic Games in Nanjing China. What an amazing experience the Olympics are,” added Fulton.
“Being with the team at the 2019 Africa Games where our ladies won silver and bronze was a very exciting moment.
“Travelling on from AG, accompanying Kuipers to the grand final in Lausanne Switzerland where she had qualified to compete was a special moment for us both.
“Witnessing our team of juniors win silver in the senior mixed relay team event at 2019 Africa championships was one of the most exciting events I have ever seen.”
On her role as vice president she is expected to foster development in all provinces.
“I am looking forward to working with the newly-appointed board and continue expanding our sport provincially. This season I am focusing on supporting Bulawayo to build the sport,” she said.
“As a federation we will continue to maintain high standards of governance, event, athlete and coach development.”
