Pelegria is coached by Salano from Bulacan. And just graduated from Grade 12.
She last saw action in the 2019 Batang Pinoy Finals in Palawan where she took the silver medal behind Erica Ruto of Calamba, Laguna. Named New Black Karen, Karen Janario who holds the Philippine Junior Record in the 100 Hurdles for girls is also a Black-Filipino athlete.
