Brownlee Foundation Triathlon brings a taste of Olympic success02.10.2017
Our Year 6 pupils enjoyed an unforgettable day, taking part in their own triathlon experience on Friday 29th September. The event was set up by Alistair and Jonny Brownlee, Olympic gold and silver medallists in Rio 2016. They founded the Brownlee Foundation in recognition of the role that schools and sports clubs played in supporting their early development as athletes.
The event gave our pupils the opportunity to take on all the disciplines of the triathlon, swimming, cycling 800m and running 300m. All pupils showed their Olympic determination to complete the events. They even had the chance to meet Alistair and Jonny themselves and ask for their tips for Olympic success! Our Year 6 class demonstrated a championship spirit, truly earning their medals. There is no doubt that with this willpower and resilience we may see them on an Olympic podium in the near future!
Everyone enjoyed this unforgettable experience, thank you to the Brownlee Foundation, Aldi and Charnwood College for organising the event.
