Olympic Assembly with Graeme Ballard

Today Coppull Parish had the amazing opportunity to meet a Paralympian who is aiming to compete in the 2012 London Olympics!

Graeme Ballard came into our school to tell us what is is like to be an elite athlete, as well as sharing his experiences of the Beijing and Athens Olympic games. 

It was great to hear about his exercise routine, healthy diet and also to be able to see an Olympic winning medal! Ballard won the bronze medal on his Paralympic debut on the 200m track event in Athens but missed out on medals in Beijing

We also really enjoyed finding out about the history of the Olympics through the presentation by pupils from Southlands High School. 

Thank you for coming to visit us.  We all really liked your visit.
