Josephine savours dream coaching role at club where she started as an athlete

Dedicated coach: Josephine Mary addressing the guests during an annual dinner organised by the Panther Athletics Club in Ipoh.

FOR two-time Asian Games bronze medallist Josephine Mary, being a grassroots coach at the Panther Athletics Club in Ipoh is more than a dream job.

For the 56-year-old Josephine, it’s a classic case of one good turn deserves another. She first cut her competitive teeth in athletics at the club way back in 1984, when she was 17.
