Athlete Visit 17.7.18

On 17th July 2018 we had an Inspired Through Sport Event where we were visited by an athlete. We were visited by the UK number 1 in 2015 and 2018 (the UK number 2 in 2017) 300m hurdles Welsh record holder and GB athlete - Lauren Williams.

 

Lauren gave us a motivational assembly and even handed round her medals and spikes for us to have a look at. Then each class was lucky enough to have a PE session with her.

 

As part of the visit we also raised £1020 towards the Inspired Through Sport Athlete program.

At 19 years old, Lauren Williams is setting herself up for a long and successful career in athletics and has continued to improve her speeds and climb the national rankings. Lauren has been competing in the hurdles at national competitions for over 6 years and has enjoyed breaking Welsh, and British records along the way! She is currently ranked number 1 in the UK for the Women’s Under 20’s 400m hurdles and 13 that in the senior category. Her current PB for the 400m hurdles is 55.86 seconds – which is super quick! With all of the success she has had at such a young age, we are excited to see where her spikes can take her in the future!
