Sports for Schools - Athlete Visit

On January 27th 2015 Commonwealth bronze medalist  Jess Taylor visited school as part of the Sports for Schools super athlete event. All the children in the school took part in a sponsored circuit training event with Jess to raise funds to provide PE equipment for schools and support athletes in general.

Jess is a GB Heptathlete. Heptathlon comprises 7 events: 100m hurdles, high jump, shot put, 200m, long jump, javelin throw and 800m. Jess's greatest achievements to date include winning bronze at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow and finishing her 7 year degree in architecture. Goals for 2015 for Jess are to win the British champs for indoors heptathlon and gain GB selection, and for outdoors heptathlon to achieve the qualifying standard and go to the world championships in Beijing. Good luck Jess!
