English Institute of Sport
Our shining stars athletes visited the English Institute of Sport which is based in Sheffield. They were given a tour of the facilities, where medal winning Olympians and elite athletes train and exercise, followed by a training session lead by one of the Institute coaches.
During the visit the children were lucky enough to meet and talk with Team GB's Olympic Bronze medalist Joshua Buatsi and also Robert McCracken, the coach of the current IBF, IBO and WBA (Super) Heavyweight Champion Anthony Joshua.
This was a great opportunity to try different skills we cannot do in school such as the long jump and basic high jump, look at ‘real’ equipment, such as a ‘real’ javelin, opposed to the foam javelins we use and to train on world class facilities.
