Sky Sports Living for Sport Program
On Friday 6th February as part of the Sky Sports Living for Sport Campaign Perry Beeches The Academy received a visit from former Great Britain Olympic athlete Daniel Caines.
Now retired, Daniel enjoyed a highly successful career in which he was World, Commonwealth, European and Europa Cup Champion in the 400m and 4x400m relay, representing his country at two Olympic Games.
Daniel spent the entire day in school, speaking to a range of our students including both gifted and talented and GCSE PE students. Both students and staff were enthused by his visit and thoroughly enjoyed listening to his story and participating in a range of practical activities.
This was a fantastic opportunity for our students to ask questions and find out more about life as a professional athlete and Olympian, this was comprehensively appreciated by all.
