Hawthorn and GB Athlete Sophie Watson

AN AMAZING LINK TO A GB ATHLETE

In Hawthorn class we had an amazing afternoon talking about Sophie Walton who is a GB athlete from Horwich and runs with Horwich Harriers. She has won multiple titles such as 200m international champion and is soon going on to the European Championships to compete for Great Britain. She is currently ranked 4th in Europe for 200m

We discussed why we believe Sophie is a good role model for people and also what about her makes her inspirational for other people. We even got a lovely surprise at the end from Sophie who gave each child a signed picture of her running for Great Britain.

WE ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO HER VISIT TO OUR CLASS ON TUESDAY!

WOW! WHAT AN AMAZING AFTERNOON WITH SOPHIE WATSON

Today we met and worked out with GB athlete Sophie Watson. She led us through her drills and warm ups. We practised lunges, pendulums, opening and closing the gate, high kisks, ladder and hurdle drills.

We then practised our response to starting a sprint race. We learnt the correct starting position. We improved our start times by sitting then starting, sitting the opposite way, lying on our bellies then starting to sprint.

We even ran against Sophie and Miss Lever.

The afternoon was so amazing and inspiring.

We all want to join Horwich Harriers!
