Charles from Uganda

"I grew up in Uganda. I can't really remember winning a race there, but I knew I could climb.

"The national coach is a Dane called Jesper Fiedler. He been there forever, or at least since before I was born, I think. When I first came to Kenya, I raced all these guys who were born at altitude, and I finished 6th. So I know this is something I can do, even if I've never won anything in Uganda."
