Meet the Team - Kris Greene
A leprechaun is a magical creature in Irish folklore, depicted as little bearded men, wearing a coat and hat, who partake in mischief. They are solitary creatures who spend their time making and mending shoes and have a hidden pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. If captured by a human, they often grant three wishes in exchange for their freedom
Kris Greene is a magical creature amongst the folks back in his home country Ireland. He is often seen sporting a beard and a hat. Having grown up a mischievous only child, he developed a solitary personality and is at peace with his own company. Kris's own wish for freedom was granted to him last September when he joined forces with three comrades and started #ThePTC to deliver his wisdom and knowledge to the sporting youth of Dubai's elite school students
Upon reaching his full potential early in his teenage life, he made the bold decision to stop growing upward and focus on growing outward. The larger powerful muscles he developed early led him to represent his country in Under-19 Rugby World Cup in 2007 and gave him a firm footing in the world of elite sport and strength and conditioning
Bitten by the bug of successfully lifting weights no higher than his competitors waistlines, the "Green for Gold" campaign towards London 2012 Olympics began. However, with a job offer on the other side of the world and the opportunity to use his knowledge and experience to drive his dream of improving the standard of elite sport in the UAE, he selflessly answered the higher calling and moved to Dubai
Should you ever wish to find the elusive bearded Irish mythical creature, known currently as Kris, look no further than the youth academies of Dubai. There you will find a solitary figure dedicated to help granting his talented young athletes their very own three wishes; opportunity, success and fame!
