WHAT a truly inspirational day I had at Wellacre Technology Academy meeting the young people and teachers involved in Sky Sports Living for Sport!
My heartfelt thanks go to the many staff and pupils who welcomed me so warmly and shared their thoughts, experiences, aspirations and learnings from this initiative.
The pupils I met were a credit to Wellacre Technology Academy and were full of enthusiasm, commitment and energy.
My role as an athlete mentor for Sky Sports Living for Sport, which is delivered in partnership with the Youth Sport Trust, is to inspire pupils, by drawing upon my own experiences of sport, the obstacles I overcame and the life lessons I have gleaned through sport. As is so often the case on these visits, I came away feeling incredibly inspired myself.
