Yasmin Miller, who represents Great Britain in the hurdles, came to visit us on Wednesday 7th February. Children and staff alike were treated to an inspiring and motivational talk about what life is like as a modern day athlete.
Yasmin spoke about her achievements and disappointments, her goals and sacrifices. She said that the support given by her family was key to her success and her aim is to compete in the Olympic Games in Tokyo in 2020. All of this combined with being a newly qualified lawyer too. Amazing!
Yasmin spent the rest of the day working with Years 1, 2, 3 and 4. The children demonstrated incredible Colla skills with their team spirit and co-operation, much whooping and shouting could be heard inside and out.
We would all like to thank Yasmin for her time and commitment to our next generation of budding athletes and wish her Good Luck in her future competitions. One final piece of advice from Yasmin, put your phone away and never give up on your dreams!
