Paralympian visits school

Aaron Phipps, Great Britain Wheelchair Rugby player and London 2012 Paralympic Olympics athlete came to visit the pupils today, giving an insight into his life, training regimes,Olympic experience and work ethic for success.

We were all amazed at how much he trains, the diet he has to follow as well as the cost of being a professional athlete, as each rugby wheelchair costs £5000!!

Thank you Aaron we really enjoyed meeting you.
