Olympic swimming champion Rebecca Adlington visits Vinehall

 

The pupils and staff at Vinehall School were thrilled when Olympic swimming star Rebecca Adlington visited on Monday. The 2008 double gold medallist from the Beijing 2008 Olympics and double bronze medallist from the London 2012 Olympics spoke to the whole school about her training and competition, as well as the experience of competing and winning at the highest level.

Rebecca concluded her visit with photos and autographs for the large crowd of children. The photo shows Rebecca with the Vinehall pupils who competed in the IAPS National Finals at the K2 Arena in Crawley. Following the inspirational visit from Rebecca Adlington, they are sure there will be more to come in future years as children look to follow in her footsteps.
