This summer we are lucky enough to have two members of Mill Hill staff heading to Tokyo for the Olympics, our Physiotherapist Miss Goriup who is travelling with the GB Fencing Team, and our Head of Hockey Mr Browne with the GB Hockey Team!
Miss Goriup sent us the below about her first few days in Tokyo.
‘I arrived in Yokahama on Friday for the Olympic prep camp. We left at 15:30 in London and arrived at 16:00 at the hotel (12 hour flight, 8 hour time difference!).
I travelled with Marcus Mepstead, Team GB fencer and his two sparring partners. It’s great to be out here and the weather is awesome, 30 degrees! When we arrived we did a bike for recovery on our balcony and used the mobility space for some stretching.’
Keep your eyes peeled on this page for more updates from Tokyo!
Miss Goriup and Mr Browne’s time in Japan was featured in the September 2021 issue of The Independent Schools Magazine (page 37) here.
Miss Goriup was also featured in Independent Education Today and Independent School Sport’s online news here.
