Olympian Nathan Douglas
Year 7 girls took part in a Sky Sports initiative this afternoon, led by triple jumper Nathan Douglas. During the afternoon, students were fortunate enough to learn all about Nathan, including; his successes in athletics, how he got there and the barriers he had to overcome, as well as taking part in some very fun activities.
The students really enjoyed the afternoon, were an absolute credit to the school, and I quote from Nathan ‘they’re a lovely group’. The afternoon was extremely beneficial to the girls and it demonstrated to the students that you can achieve your dreams!
Some of Nathan’s achievements include;
- 2x Olympian
- 2x European Silver Medalist
- 4x National Champion and National Championship Record Holder with a PB of 17.64m in the triple jump.
