Youngsters at Ipswich High School for Girls welcomed an inspirational visitor at the school on Wednesday, February 8 as Olympic athlete Dominic King led a series of sports sessions.
The Colchester-based racewalker, who competed in the men’s 50km walk at the 2012 and 2016 Olympic Games, visited on Wednesday as part of the Sports for Schools initiative where athletes lead sports sessions to inspire pupils and help raise money for PE equipment for schools.
Mr King ran a series of fitness circuits for the girls before speaking to them about his sporting successes and his path to Olympic team GB selection in a special question and answer session.
Jane Fison, director of sport at Ipswich High School for Girls, said: “It was such a great opportunity for our students to meet Olympic athlete Dominic King.
“The girls came away inspired by Dominic and I am sure this day will have a lasting impression on the girls.”
