Mike Edwards has STACS PE stars aiming high!

On Thursday, a selection of talented P.E. students were treated by a visit from British high jumper Mike Edwards. Edwards would go on to finish second in the British Championships the following weekend, so it was a real privilege for him to have taken time out of his busy training regime! Students started the day with a talk from Edwards about his much-travelled life in the sport, before holding an informal question and answer session, where they could get to grips with the training, nutrition and lifestyle demands of an elite athlete. Following a quick trip to the playground at break time to show off his dunking skills with the Year 10 basketball team, Edwards then led two practical sessions for students based on injury prevention and maintaining high levels of fitness during a career at the top.

Everyone involved would like to thank Mike for dropping in and sharing a real insight with those aiming to be the country's next sporting superstars!
