To whom it may concern;
I have known Linda Hughes since l attended a Highland Games clinic Linda taught at the Elizabeth Celtic Festival in 2018. Linda planted the seed of competition in me at that clinic and I started serious training for the Highland Games this spring.
Unfortunately this start was severely impacted by the COVID-19 crisis but Linda immediately adapted by generously loaning out all of her equipment to her students. We then started virtual coaching sessions twice weekly. Linda has constantly adapted her coaching to the virtual environment and has helped me make rapid progress in all the events.
I competed in a charity games in Colorado Springs in June and placed 4th in the Weight Over Bar event in a field of 9 Masters Men Competitors. Amazing for a novice!
We have also met once a week as a team to train while maintaining social distancing. Linda is a fantastic and creative coach. She is very dedicated to the health and wellbeing of her students. I highly recommend Linda as a coach and mentor!
Thank you, Joseph DeBrohun
