Sarah Davies - Team GB Weightlifter is coming to spend a day at HCS
On Wednesday 8 March Sarah Davies who is the current British and European champion will be spending the day at school running PE workshops for pupils in both Prep and Senior School. She will be speaking in two assemblies and ending the day having in-depth discussions with the current Year 11 GCSE pupils about elite performance, nutrition and training programmes.
Sarah has represented both Team GB & Team England at an international level, competing on both a European championships, World championships and Commonwealth games, representing her country as one of UK’s top athletes. Furthermore she has a very inspiring story to tell the pupils, based around the difficulties she has faced in the sport, and how she has overcome them. She was once a national level Gymnast, before becoming a beauty queen. Only to then turn to weightlifting and within her first major year of doing the sport winning the British championships. Since then she has not looked back, narrowly missing Olympic selection.
Sarah will be in full team GB kit and will also bring in a medal to show the pupils. We are very excited and look forward to welcoming Sarah who is also happy to sign autographs and take pictures.
