Kile Jones – Professional Triathlete to be keynote speaker at the 10th Annual SPORT AWARDS Oct 22nd.
One of the biggest rewards of becoming an Olympian has been the opportunity to share my journey and encourage people young and old to set goals and follow their dreams.
Whenever I speak to a group I always make a point of emphasizing the need to not only dream big but to pursue it with determination and perseverance. Success doesn’t happen overnight and I think it’s very important to share with kids the amount of work required, the many ups and downs, the obstacles to overcome and sacrifices along the way. I want them to know that these bumps in the road are to be expected with such a big dream and they are, in a way, what makes achieving dreams so special.
