This morning, Holbrook was visited by Olympian Deji Tobais, who runs in 100m and 200m sprinting…
He spoke with children about working hard, never giving up and making changes in their lives in order to achieve. He also spoke about the injuries that he has faced over his career, including suffering from meningitis and becoming deaf in one ear, including how he still gave his very best in order to compete in athletics championships.
Deji explained what it takes to be an athlete and the things that you need in order to succeed. Later today, classes will have a chance to take part in PE lessons with Deji to find out more about his athletic skills.
If you would like to, leave a comment below letting us know what you thought of Deji’s visit to our school!
