Sports for Schools – 17th October
Yesterday we had our ‘Sports for Schools’ sponsored sports circuit event with David Hill, Paralympic Triathlete. The Knighton House pupils took part in a circuit which included spotty dogs, leg drives, press-ups and star jumps. Great fun for both pupils and staff!
David was born without the lower part of his left arm. After 12 years of international swimming, he sought out a new challenge, and changed to British Para-triathlon. Previously, he was GB’s youngest Paralympic Triathlete at the Athens Games in 2004; aged just 15 he competed in the final of the 100m backstroke. It was fascinating to hear from David and we are very grateful to him for spending the afternoon with us. Thank you David.
