Pupils meet Olympic Gold Medal Decathlete

On Friday 5th of November a group of sixth form PE students from Mill Hill had the pleasure of meeting Olympic Gold Decathlon athlete, Daley Thompson for a Channel 4 production. Mill Hill students took part in a fitness competition led by Daley Thompson against a group of 16-18 year olds from around the country. The competition included a series of circuits such as press ups, sit ups, throwing a medicine ball, cycling, standing broad jump, rowing, step ups and skipping. Each event had a boy and girl representative from both sides who fought for points. Overall Mill Hill won 9-7. It was an amazing experience meeting Daley Thompson, who is extremely friendly and a true inspiration, and was very encouraging throughout the day. It was a thoroughly enjoyable session for everyone and students went away with medals and autographs.
