GB Athlete Luke Lennon-Ford visits Northease
400m runner Luke Lennon-Ford was in school putting our students through their paces. He encouraged students through energetic fitness circuits and then told staff and students how he got to become a top athlete by working hard and never giving up.
Luke's coach is the famous Linford Christie and he has just come back from training with Usain Bolt in Jamaica.
Students have been raising money through being sponsored to take part in Luke's fitness circuits. The money will go towards school sports equipment and towards the Team GB training programme. Thanks to all those who have taken part and to the PE teachers for organising such an exciting event.
Many thanks to Luke for coming to Northease and we all wish him the best of luck at the Olympics in Rio this summer.
