We were delighted to welcome Harry Owen, a member of the medal winning Team GB gymnastic squad, and one of the 'Sports for Champions' representatives to our school today.
Harry spent the morning working with all of the children on their sponsored fitness circuits. They all had a great time and it was lovely to see them joining in with such an exceptional role model as he took them through their paces!
After the children had all completed their activities, Harry gave a power point assembly which explained how he became involved in his sport, (starting at 8 years old), and how hard athletes have to work to maintain the amazing level of fitness and skill which enables them to become a member of the national team.
At the end of the morning the whole school was treated to a wonderful gymnastic display which involved Mrs McCarthy-Patmore too!
We are very much looking forward to welcoming Sports for Champions back to Aveton Gifford Primary School next year.
