This week BPS welcomed the Paralympic athlete Ben Rushgrove to the school. We all took part in a sponsored circuit training session with him which was followed by an inspirational assembly where we got to see both his bronze and silver Olympic medals and hold his running shoes. We were all left amaze when he told us that he is able to run 10 metres in 1 second!
Later on in the week, we all took part in a wheelchair basketball session. Kev, the coach, taught us how to get in and out of the chair safely and gave us a few rules of the game and then we were off! We were all surprised by how quickly we build up speed and were soon whizzing around the hall.
