    Default of or from?

    SITUATION: my friend got thumbs up for her achievement in running. Can I say "Congratulations on your trainer's compliment" or is it "Congratulations on the compliment from your trainer"??

    Either can be used, however I would use the second sentence.
    I'm not a teacher yet, but I am studying a Bachelor of Education with an English Literature major at Charles Sturt University, in NSW, Australia.
