Elite Athlete Visits STACS

On Friday, a selection of gifted and talented PE students were treated to a morning with Edi Okoro, a Great Britain and Birchfield Harriers 110m hurdler. In the morning, students had a talk about the experiences that led Edi to a career in sport and the setbacks that he has had to overcome along the way, followed by a question and answer session. This was followed by practical sessions experiencing first hand some of the training and conditioning activities that Edi uses on a daily basis. There was even time for some 3 v 3 basketball and Edi's own take on the Running Man Challenge!

The school would like to thank Edi for taking time out of his training schedule to spend time with our students, and well done to all who participated in the day - you were a credit to the school!
