AGGS students were honoured to listen to a talk from Laura and Jason Kenny, Olympic cycling champions, who have 10 Olympic gold medals between them. Students were selected randomly from each form and special invites were given to senior sports women and those who have representational honours or reached national finals last academic year.
Laura and Jason talked about how they started cycling, their passion for the sport, their favourite places to compete and their training regimes. They were an inspiration to all of our students not just those interested in sports, as they talked about the need to give new things a try and work hard in whatever it is you are doing so as to improve and be the best that you can be. They have released an autobiography ‘The Inside Track’ which they kindly donated a signed copy of to the school. Students were also given the opportunity to ask questions, have photographs and get autographs; it was an amazing afternoon and we were delighted to be chosen to meet them!
