New Ontario Tyke Girl 150M Record - 20.95s

From breaking provincial and national records in Ontario and Canada, to holding 4 different youth world records as a sprinter, Randy has enjoyed great success as a young Track & Field athlete. Recruited from several universities across North America including Notre Dame, TCU, Harvard, the University of Toronto and UCLA, Randy signed a 5 year athletic scholarship with UCLA and joined one of the greatest academic and athletic universities in the world. Randy was coached by John Smith, arguably one of the greatest sprint coaches in history and had the privilege to train and work with Trinidadian Ato Boldon (Olympic 100m Silver medalist and World 200m Champion), American Maurice Greene (previous 100m World Record Holder and Gold Medalist Olympian) and French star Marie-José Pérec (200m & 400m Olympic Gold Medalist) among others. Competing successfully at a high level coupled with years of sports training know how has made the transition of star athlete to high level sports performance coach rather seamless for Randy Brookes. Coach Randy Brookes is a certified sprint coach and is ready to share his wealth of knowledge to athletes looking to enhance their performance and reach their next level.
