Kieron Achara Basketball

Constantly focus on the positives in every situation with the goal of continuing to be the best you can be.

About me

I started basketball at the age of 15 when I joined my school team. I was inspired to continue playing thanks to a very passionate and charismatic volunteer coach. My dedication to the sport continued when I was offered an opportunity to go to the USA on a Scholarship where I got my degrees in Management and Marketing.

After University, I turned professional with the goal of competing in the London 2012 Olympics. I played all over Europe (Italy, Spain, Greece, and Bulgaria) as well as representing my national team and in 2012 my goal was achieved.

Main qualities are: good team mate, good communicator, focused and determined to constantly improve.
