5 time Olympian comes to The Junior School

8th July 2016

Five time Olympian Chris Maddocks joined the Junior School for today to help the children through their sponsored Olympic challenge. Chris holds the record for the number of Olympics he has competed in for Great Britain in athletics and he was keen to share some of his stories with the children in assembly. Chris' event is the 50km walk for which he last represented Great Britain at the 2000 Olympics in Sydney, where despite injury he still finished in front of 100,000 people.
He joined the Year 3 children for 45 minutes of walking or running in order for them to either individually or as a team complete their Olympic distance challenge. All money raised continues to go towards our new adventure playground.
