Chris Cook- Olympic Swimmer

We had an excellent day with Chris Cook today.  Chris swam for Britain in the Olympics, world championships and European championships.  He also swam for England in the Commonwealth Games in which he won two gold medals for the 50m and 100m breaststroke.  As always Chris was inspirational, he did a whole school session looking at how he needed perseverance to achieve his goal and some of the setbacks he had along the way.

Chris then worked with each class looking at comfort zones and how they could expand these.  Finally, twenty lucky swimmers had a session with him in the pool. Using demonstrations and individual pointers Chris gave some amazing coaching.  The passion and enthusiasm that Chris brings in both his swimming and motivational work held staff and children captivated.
